What a clever guy you are, Stoner.
Glad to see you making such an effort to be helpful.
LOL, what he said, including the eye rolls.
The TIM that comes with the stock heatsink does an OK job conducting heat. However if you plan on overclocking, it would be a good idea to buy some quality thermal paste like Arctic Silver Ceramique or they have a new product coming out next week called Arctic Silver 5. Preliminary results from beta testers indicates that it does perform 1-2C better @ load temps than AS Ceramique.
I don't have my retail kit handy, but I could have sworn the stock Intel HS comes with some Shin Etsu paste in addition to the pad. Might want to look around.
