Hi everyone im building a PC for the first time specs are below.

Intel i5 6600k
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
MSI Z170 Krait Gaming Motherboard
Sapphire Nitro R9 380X 4GB GPU
8GB Corsair Vengeance 2400 DDR4 RAM
120GB Kingston SSD
500GB Seagate HDD
XFX XTR 750W 80+ Gold PSU
NZXT S340

Okay so my question is when I am assembling my PC will I need to apply thermal paste to the CPU seeing that the 212 EVO already has paste applied to the bottom of it upon delivery, it might seem like a stupid question to you experienced guys but I dont want to mess this up.

Also the S340 comes with 2 stock 120mm exhaust fans in the top and back should I go for two 140mm AF fans or SP fans due to the front panel.

Any help is appreciated.


Any help is appreciated

You can use the stock thermal paste on the 212, it works fine. However some good thermal past can help if you're still having heat issues. I wouldn't bother until you know you need to, or you start to really really overclock.
