Thermal tape on HSF--enough, or add paste?

In the box for Athlon II x2 250, there's no thermal paste--instead, the HSF unit has a small square of thermal tape. Is this little square of thermal tape adequate, or would it be beneficial to add some thermal paste to the CPU surface too?

I'm a newbie to building, so not clear about this; want to be sure I do this critical step correctly. Thanks for info.

The thermal pad already on the cooler is plenty.
