I've read very good things about the i7. Good choice!

The processors heat sink will come with a thermal pad already on it. Just make sure it is evenly aligned on the processor before you clamp it down. It is not adviseable to mix thermal compounds.

Thermal paste is normally needed when the heatsink and fan are removed from the processor, cleaned then re-applied.
