I have a retail P4 2.53ghz chip package which has heatsync/fan included. The manual says to only apply thermal compound if it has not been pre applied. It also shows an illustration of the "pre-applied themal solution". This seems a little weird, as there was no compound or syringe in the box. Is it as easy as just snapping it into the motherboard?????

Any help would be appreciated.
