A lot of times yes with HDT Coolers. You can experiment with them and you'll find that the single dot doesn't always cover the Pipes properly in their contact. Make sure you use very small amounts though as you don't want globs of overlap on the cooler surface or TIM leaking out the sides.

Just got this cooler with my new setup, since all the parts came the same day, installing was very easy lol.

So far it's super cool, but I'm just getting to OCing as I know the system is rock solid and I found the top OC of my 5870, on air anyways...

I love my Hyper 212+, easy to install (if this isnt your first heatsink install) temps are way below that of the stock cooler, and now i can enjoy quiet cooling with a 120mm Noctua attached in a push position. (dont need the extra noise of a pull fan)

i followed a few guide on HDT past job

and everyone ive seen put it on the nickel part, not on the actual pipe, but everyone will full up the "cracks" between the nickel and cooper pipes first,

ive been pondering lapping mine but not sure if i want to try that, never lapped a HS before

try smaller grit than what you might try first, just in case. using bigger grit, some get carried away

I second dangtx said, you really want to be careful when lapping a HDT cooler because the heatpipes are already sanded down to make them flat, it is hard to tell how much material is left and lapping too much will destroy them.
