Hi,
Looking to build my pc sometime tommorrow/today and was wondering whether the pre-applied compound will do the job without any overclocking etc- it'll be left at stock voltage and clock speed for the majority of it's life. I'm looking for a quick answer because if it will run fine without any, then I should be putting it together tonight.

Thanks.

YES

most people here agree that premium thermal paste is a really unnecessary expense

It will do fine at stock clocks. The pre-applied compound is just a thermal paste that melts when heated.
