The suggested heat sink compound is Arctic Silver. As the name implies, there are very tiny bits of silver in the compound, it therefore becomes conductive! This is another reason it costs so much more than other compounds. I actually checked this out on line to see what it was made of. When using Arctic Silver, very, very little goes a long way. There are other compounds that do not contain metal, such as the one aforementioned in the previous answer.
