I would recommend using thermal compound (paste) like AS5 to replace the stock thermal compound when "fixing" the NB heatsink.

I agree with tecmo34, using a dot of thermal paste on the center of the NB or SB an then re-applying the HS works great. most NBs/SBs will have a thermal pad/paste already so your need to completely clean that off.
A paper towel and alcohol works great as it evaporates almost instantly, and if you (Lap) the HS's your get a lil better cooling as well but its a bit time consuming but its usually worth it. :p
