Thermal paste is fine... I only use the pad on new heatsinks when I'm not going to O.C. the chip... Just spread a thin even layer on the die and heatsink with your finger. Cover your finger with Saran Wrap first though so the oil from your finger doesn't contaminate the paste...

edit: I've done dozens of Durons with the paste this way... Just don't put too much paste.
