Urk, be nice to your poor machine, don't get the Rat Shack thermal
compound.  It's the same stuff that you see 'geeks' putting on their
nose for sunscreen in 60s and 70s movies.  Really cheap crappy stuff.
Get some of the 'luxury' stuff that PC Rice Boys use, it's got a much
higher thermal conductivity, and it's a lot easier to put on the
super-thin layer that you really need (all it has to do is make sure the
seal between the aluminum sinc and the CPU is tight and air-free).
