Heatsink compounds

Just bought a new motherboard and Athlon CPU from the fair.  I've never put my 
own system together, so I'm unsure about the best thing to do with the 
Heatsink compound.  It is Stars-700 and says it is 10% silver.

http://www.frostytech.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=803 suggests that I should 
only use a very little on the core, or since it is an AMD processor, perhaps 
not at all.

Any hardware guru's care to offer some sage advice?
