I checked and there is no thermal paste there at all.
Is that normal?

No its not on the heatsink either but i dont remember about the thermal pad. I m quite bad at remembering things but as far as i can remember there was just metal and no thermal stuff on heatsink or GPU

read from the arctic silver5 website under installation, they have a good reason for not spreading it. i.e. the heat transfer is more efficient if the paste is centered on the cpu instead of totally covering it.
I agree with this method. But letting the pressure of the heatsink do the job gives almost the same output: thermal paste evenly spread over nearly the entire surface.
