As I am transferring the CPU and heatsink to a new case and motherboard. Will I be required to apply new thermal paste?

If so, are there any links to buy you recommend?

Yes, it is better to clean off the old thermal compound and apply new.

Use Arctic Silver 5. - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA4DA...

The CPU needs to be carefully dropped into the socket and secured before the heatsink is installed (with Arctic Silver 5).
