any new heatsink will come with some paste on the unit already - it'll have a protective cover over it so it doesn't get smudged/etc. in the packaging.

I used the basic existing stuff initially on my first install and it worked just fine. I used some leftover artic silver when I swapped out some components a while after and it performed essentially the same.

keep in mind the height of the coolers. some of the 212's are pretty tall and might not fit in certain cases. you should just be able to google the heatsink model along with your case model and find out of people have used them before and if it does/doesn't fit. they're very popular coolers, and you could even just fire coolermaster an email - I've always had very good/quick responses from their support.
