Default Do I need to buy thermal paste???

I recently bought parts to build a computer, which is still being shipped. I got an intel pentium E5200, and plan on using the stock cooler. Am I going to need to buy thermal paste for it?

You probably wont need one. The Stock Cooler comes with thermal paste already.

The stock cooler will come with thermal paste on it.

OK, so I just flop the cooler on the processor and fire it up?

yupz basicly, reason you'd buy a thermal paste is for OC'ing w/ an aftermarket cooler.
