The stock cooler in the box has paste applied, but know the stock cooler is very loud.

i would still order some artic silver paste since the one pre-applied (if any) is usualy poor quality anyway and its always good to have some at home it can always be handy to have and it cost like 4$...

That is kinda odd, as my FX 8320's both did have it preapplied to the stock heatsink.
