hi, i just bought my cpu and in the instructions it says that thermal paste should be used on the cpu, and that its pre-applied on the heatsink. so im just wondering ( i bought retail amd 640) does that mean that all i have to do is install it? or do i need to apply thermal paste to the cpu also?, i assumed it was pre applied when i bought it, being that its retail, but now im unsure and i dont want to overapply it if its already there.

if your heatsink has pre-applied thermal paste, then DO NOT apply more on the CPU.

ok, so for future reference if cpu or heat sink doesnt have thermal paste , that means i should just apply it on either or?
