Default Installing AMD64 Retail - please help

Im in the process of installing a AMD64 Athlon 3000 (754 socket) onto my mobo. Since it is RETAIL, it came with a heatsink and fan. On the amd website they showed processors with rubber pads that the heatsink rests on, and they showed some heatsinks that have a different clip that latches to the mobo.

The instructions that came with the chip and heatsink seem fairly simple. Do I need to apply any compounds or anything? Am I thinking into this too much? Please advise with some steps/advice...

Have you read through the intructions yet? Sounds like you're worrying over nothing, you can do it, you'll be fine. There should be a pad on the bottom of the hsf already, just seat it on the cpu, carefully, and then latch it..
