Default The goo in between proc + heatsink???

Hi ok so i never really thought about this before...

I was looking at my new amd 3500+ and heatsink (got delivered today) and thought about the little goo/putty/solution thing that is goes in between. Do i need this?

I guess i assumed i would be supplied with it! Im presuming this increases heat flow away from processor?? Do I need it, is it better?

I'm not shure if the new one's come w/the termal paste, but i do know for a fact ....you do need that between the CPU & the heatsink.....

But if you are applying it yourself, don't put too much on or you will get bad results.

Also don't put to little also, cuz that would cause prob's too, just put enough to litely cover the surface.

hmmm being honest i cant tell, i think it actually does, its the standard heatsink+ fan included with a amd athlon 3500+ socket 939 newcastle (130nm)
it does have a sort of cloth pad on the base of the heatsink. is that all i need?

please keep help coming! i do want to keep this processor for more than 5seconds!! :-D
