It should be able to fit only into one spot. Look carefully.

NO!!! bad idea... that wont allow the heatsink to properly seat on the processor ultimately leading to a fried processor... not to mention it would probably crush the sensor

Do not place the thermal censor (thermistor) between the CPU and heatsink. You can damage both the censor and CPU. Instead, place it along the edge of the CPU as shown here:
