Default AMD 64 3000+ 939 thermal paste?

I just ordered an AMD64 3000+ 939 with a bundled fan,
(http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...Tab=2&NoMapp=0)
but need to know if thermal paste is required or not. I assume the heatsink comes with this?

Does anyone here know?

Same CPU I got wednesday. It won't come with thermal paste. A thermal pad or paste IS REQUIRED if you do not want your CPU to fry. The heatsink will have thermal grease on the bottom (Thermal pad) Once its lied on top of the CPU it will act as a silver bullet. Although thermal paste is more efficient I used a thermal pad and my idle temperature is 35C.
