Will I need to buy thermal compound?

I'm about to buy
http://www.amazon.com/AMD-Athlon-Processor-AD760KWOHLBOX-Richland/dp/B00D7BYMB2
and im wondering If I need to buy thermal paste. I heard some people say that thermal paste are pre-applied on the cooler. If that is the case, then when I receive the cpu all I have to do is put the heatsink on the cpu without thermal paste right?

  1. If the CPU comes with a cooler ( which I think it does, but do check) the cooler comes with thermal paste pre-applied, so u need not buy any
  2. Best answer
    Yes a boxed retail cpu comes with a cooler supplied with pre-applied thermal compound.
    A retail tray cpu comes with just the cpu.
    You have linked a AD760KWOHLBOX which comes with all you need.
  3. Still, not a bad idea to have some on hand, just in case.
