Hi and welcome to Tom's forum.
If you want change the cooler, yeah, you need replace the thermal paster for a new one.
Thank you very much
I have not place any thermal paster because in the installation notes was writen that it needs paster for AMD socket and not for 775
If the cooler is new, should comes with thermal grease.
