And this one from the guys at pcstats (very good too).

Don't forget to clean the top of the CPU and HSF, and reapply NEW thermal paste if your taking the HSF off to replace or reseat the CPU.

Don't forget to clean the dust from the HSF.

Don't forget to plug the power lead back into the mobo (or molex connector if you have a fan regulator system) on the HSF before firing up the system.

Hopefully some of the others can do a similar thread for the other sockets.
