That's why I don't like those OEM sticky pads some mfg's use. You have to pay attention even when you buy name-brad stuff. Besides their regular compound, Arctic Silver sells a themal adhesive, which will definatly not come off
A note of caution! I tried to upgrade an old computer of mine from a 2.4 to a 3.4, except the 2.4 had been sitting in there for so long it was practically fused to the heatsink. So, what happened when I tried to take it out? I ripped out the CPU out of its socket with the heatsink, thus ruining my motherboard but happily built a new kickass rig as a result. Moral of the story? Loosen up the heatsink if you can with a hair dryer or something.
