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