You will have to buy your own AS5. It is good to use for oc'ing or not.

EDIT: A retail CPU will come with a HSF. The HSF will have thermal compound on it. If you buy OEM you will need a HSF and some thermal greese.

Depends if you buy it new in the box/retail or oem.

If it comes in a Retail box, you'll get the stock Intel heatsink which comes with pre-applied thermal compound. I'd still buy AS5 and use that, even on the stock heatsink.

or even better get some MX1 (Arctic Cooling). I find this is better than the Arctic Silver 5 stuff by 2-4 oC.
