there wasnt on mine... just a plastic tray you unclipped off the bottom (but the heatsink wouldnt fit on the socket without taking the tray off!)

wow nubius.. ive been gone 6 months and i come back to find out u STILL write essays for posts lol... haha... but yes nubius is right... if thermal paste isnt provided in ur processors box it means that there is a thermal pad at the bottom of ur heatsink... personally i think it'd run a lil cooler if u took off the pad (and get every bit of it off using rubbing alcohol) and put on some thermal paste (like as5) instead... but its running pretty good using the thermal pad
