RockPro64 Case 2x3.5" HDDs and 2x2.5 HDDs

But now that I have it this hardware noob has a question (and may have more later I'm sure). In the attached picture shows what came with the heatsink from the Pine64 shop. I have not been able to find any information anywhere on the Pine64 site about how to use those included items. At least the packet says what it is so I could search for information about it but the grey pad took a bit longer (I gather now it is likely a thermal pad?). In any case I was hoping I could get some help here.

How do I install the heat sink so it works best with this case? Do I just use the thermal pad? Do I just use the thermal compound? Do I use both and if so in what order? (heatsink-pad-compound or heatsink-compound-pad) Any other things to be aware of when use these items? (I hear if this compound is conductive, no idea if this one is, then there is a risk of a short. How might one mitigate this?)

Thanks in advance for ANY advice on this. Cheers!

I haven't used the thermal paste, so can't speak to that, but the pad is non-conductive so you can just place it over the SOC and RAM and install the heatsink over it. If you'd take the time to include the relevant step to the wiki page concerning the NAS case, I'd appreciate that.
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter
