Same CPU I got wednesday. It won't come with thermal paste. A thermal pad or paste IS REQUIRED if you do not want your CPU to fry. The heatsink will have thermal grease on the bottom (Thermal pad) Once its lied on top of the CPU it will act as a silver bullet. Although thermal paste is more efficient I used a thermal pad and my idle temperature is 35C.
