The cooler's base plate is protected by a plastic foil which is easily removed. However, I found that a bit of the adhesive glue remained on the cooler's base. This should not affect cooling performance.
The contact area of the heatsink base is super flat, you can barely make out scratches or other imperfections. I cleaned the heatsink base using Arctic Silver ArctiClean. As you can see the surface improves a little bit.
