But i see there are only six in the pack...i think it's not a false example pic it's more of a misplaced title...

No, I had those RAMsinks on my card before I got the new Silencer.. You get 8 in a pack, and they all come with thermal tape pre-attatched.

if you are a bit into diy get yourself a bigass pentium pro heatsink, lap the base (those heatsinks have lots of manufacturing ridges), cut it up, then lap the base again from any marks you added while cutting

thermal conductivity does not matter much with ramsinks - put whatever you got in the middle and leave the four corners blank .. but some glue/hotglue/epoxy/spit there and you have a solution which you can easily remove

Why not put it in the corners? I use adhesive tape but will probably get adhesive paste soon.
