Where Did You Hear Of Cardomain
The chip I have recomends it. I only run the 89 octane with no problems at all. I ran the 93 when I first got it but since gas prices have gone up I have been running the 89.

I have the hypertech thermomaster. But honestly the only reason I keep it in the car is for the lower fan settings. I did not notice any other difference performance wise. I also got lucky and found mine used on ebay for $25.

I've heard that you do if you want to reap the full benefits it has to offer. But I don't think you have to if you chose not to. You may lose some performance but there shouldn't be any harm done. That is if your ride is mostly stock.
If it's heavily modified, and your chip is specially programmed for your set-up, then running a higher octane fuel may be more critical.
