THe heatsink has a thermal pad attached. You simply peel off the
plastic protective cover and place the heatsink on the CPU.

If it's like the 3200+ and the X2 3800+ I have, the thermal compound is
pre-applied to the base of the HSF, which is protected by a plastic cover.
You will have to first insert the CPU in your motherboard socket, then
attach the HSF by attaching it to the bracket which should be installed on
the motherboard.
