Order some Arctic Silver, you'll do well with that. Don't use any of those factory standard heat pads/pastes, they're just not as good.

Yeah, the pads arn't very good to begin with. I wouldn't trust the stock paste on such an important componant, only the best when you spend that kind of money on some new hardware. Get some arctic silver, it's worth the money.
