heatsink paste needed?

Do I need to put any substance between the cpu (Celeron 533 PPGA in this case) and the heatsink or is the contact pressure enough?

I seem to remember a paste that helped conduct heat. Is it necessary?

Thx in advance

You need thermal grease. Your heatsink should have come with some.
