I'm using a cooler master hyper evo 212 and wondering if I need thermal paste on my CPU.
If I do, where do I buy it?

Best solution

you have to use thermal compound, otherwise having a cooler won't matter, the cpu will still fry. Some cpu coolers come with it either pre applied or include it in a small syringe type applicator. Otherwise, you can buy it online from newegg, tigerdirect, ncix,etc. Best buy may have some too.

yes u always want to apply a small layer of thermal paste on your cpu anytime you change heatsinks, you can order it online or stop by a radioshack (although very expesive) or a microcenter/bestbuy or a local computer store.
