Direct contact cpu cooler needs thermal compound?

I ordered the cooler master hyper 212 evo and it has this direct pipe technology or something (here's the proper info: and I was wondering if I still need to put thermal compound on it? Also, this will work with the lga 1150 won't it? It says so on the newegg tech specs.
