The H55 has preapplied paste, you should use it because it saves you the trouble of doing it yourself.

Don't worry, you won't see that much of a difference if you used your own pasted.

HOWEVER, I do recommend something else like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO as it is cheaper and performs relatively near the H55, but at a much lower price.

Thermal compound is a must for efficient heat transfer between the CPU surface and heatsink.
