The heatsink will have a thermal pad on the bottom. I would recommend removing it, and applying Arctic Silver 5.

To remove the thermal pad from the heatsink, simply dampen a napkin with rubbing alcohol, and wipe the previous compound off.

Keep in mind that the same procedure is not used when removing the compound off of the CPU. You can read how it should be done here.

My XP3200+ Barton has temperatures of around 38C idle and 45C under load, I did not use Arctic Silver because I don't overclock.

My HSF came with a Thermal Paste.
