I am planning on buying a COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO and the way it is described it sounds like you don't need thermal paste for it. So my question would be do I or do I not need thermal paste?

It comes with some. So you won't need to buy any unless you are picky about the paste you use or you think you're going to need to re-apply a lot.

The Hyper 212 EVO comes with it's own thermal paste. It's not the absolute best, but not bad. It should be fine.

HSF generally come with their own thermal paste if you dont have a good one yourself.

Every heat sink requires thermal compound. Most head sinks come with it though. The one Cooler Master has is perfectly fine for what it is. You don't need to spend $5 or so on Silver 5 to get 3 or 4C better temps. I am using the 212 Plus, not EVO, but it is pretty much the same with a few changes on the heat sink it self. Get the EVO.
