Default cpu question

I know this is a newb question but do the processors come with thermal conductive paste?

(this is the processor)

However, note that if it is OEM (as opposed to retail), it'll just be the processor...no paste/fan/etc!

And if you want to overclock it, then you will want Artic Silver 5 and an Aftermarket heatsink such as the XP 90, 120, TT Big Typhoon, Scythe Ninja or a zalman 9550 (Or was it the 9700, can't remember)

alright my last question is do I need to spread the paste completely over the top of the processor or just put a little in the middle?

No, A single dot in the center, no Bigger than a cooked piece of White rice. The heatsink being placed down will do all the spreading.
