Can anybody tell me if the retail cpu as mentioned above comes with
heatsink compound already applied , or do i need to apply compound
to the cpu myself.

Retail CPU's almost always come with heat sink compound or a pad. In most cases a pad.

they will come with a pad already on the heatsink, you just have to peel the protective plastic covering it before you install the heatsink

just follow the install instructions to the T and you'll be allright

unless you want to go with a aftermarket heatsink:
