Do I need thermal paste to clean my air filter?

I have a Asus G56JK-CNO64H laptop (came out in 2013, bought it in late 2014) and i am considering to clean the air filter since it keeps overheating when i'm playing certain games. But my question is, do i need thermal paste to do it? Some guides tells you to use it, while others don't. Is it really necessary?

It is ALWAYS good idea to use Thermal paste whenever cooling system touches cooling object - in your case probably processor. Thermal paste just help your cooling body to transfer temperature more efficiently.
