My System Specs

From what I've seen you can peel of pretty much any stock heatsink on GPU memory, north bridges, southbridges, mosfets, and you'll see glops of haphazardly applied cheap TIM or rubber strips. I would automatically pop them off and replace it with good material, although with mosfets and GPU heatsinks, the thickness of the stock TIM serves and important purpose which is to compensate for the fact that the surface of all the modulesa re not level, and a thin layer of arctic silver might prevent proper contact with the heatsink at some points.
