There's very little difference between legit thermal compounds. If it comes with thermal compound, you should be fine.

Stock cooler (NEW) comes with a correct layer thickness adequate thermal compound for the job.
Nothing else necessary.

Think of it like this, These people "invented" this particular CPU, they know the spec, and know what it does/needs. So, NO, you don't HAVE to change it, and, people even found that the stock stuff is actually BETTER then the other "highend" stuff..

Have fun Gaming!
