Yes that is correct Leaps, the compound is AS Ceramique and is 2.5g vs. AS 5 which is 3.5g. May have applied too much of it too, so I removed and cleaned again, braking the zinc brackets from the new heatsink as well. Living in CO.S. makes it harder to find a decent PC store, newegg no longer delivers to P.O.B.s. Need to find a way to deliver. The original intel brackets worked fine, my fault for not removing them properly.
