No, you can use the pre-applied thermal paste and it will be hard to tell the difference between it and anything else. I typically use it the first time and then only replace it later on when I need to take out the cooler or time goes by. I don't think AS would be an improvement regardless. There are some newer compounds that might let you scrape out 1C less, but usually at an inflated price.
