zachbelmont, it most certainly will yield a higher success if you do. The kit is strictly proving additional pressure on the GPU/CPU to try to close cracks in the solder joints. Combining this with a reflow with a heat gun may just add to a good repair. Check on here step 49 will explain it. Check on here for the reflow guide. Hope this helps, good luck.
