You go on BIOS and check if the CPU has been installed properly.
Have you put a CPU cooler on it?
Is the PSU connected to the CPU?
Did you apply THERMAL PASTE?
Check the temperatures with software, and try to see if Windows recognizes it as specified on the box.

One last question: Is a cooler necessary, or can I just apply thermal paste to it?

A cooler is 100% necessary, do not run your computer without one or you run the risk of destroying your cpu. You must first apply thermal paste (or you could use a thermal pad, but they are inferior to paste) then you put the cooler on top. You can use the stock cooler that comes with all AMD or Intel processors or you can get an aftermarket one like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO for example. Here is a great video for applying thermal paste

Some coolers come with thermal paste pre applied, I personally recommend you to use some after market thermal paste, just remove the old thermal paste with some alcohol.

Also if you want to remove thermal paste from a CPU use alcohol to rinse it after un mounting it to re apply some thermal paste in the future.
