Default Thermal Grease, X2 processor

I just bought a retail PIB AMD x2 4800 processor. It came with the heatsink, and now I'm reading that I should apply thermal grease or a thermal pad to the lidded processor. Thermal grease is suggested, but from different sources I'm reading that I have to and I do not have to. I'm wondering if anyone around her has bought one of the x2 processors and knows whether I have to go make the trip to buy thermal grease. Just when I'm getting all excited to build this thing I find out I need more materials, sheesh. Please help me!
