Default Thermal Compund, Thermal Solution... help!

I want to remove the stock cooling on my radeon 9800 Pro with a better cooling heatsink and fan. I know to shave and sand down the original stuff they ahd on it but what do i use to go between the hs and the core? Do i use thermal compound, thermal pads, thermal solution (like artic silver 5)? Also, theres alot of talk about the "Shim"...what do i have to look out for? If i understand correctly, the shim actually is highier than the core so i have to do something to allow the hs to touch the core? Also as far as ramsinks, what should i use for connecting the ram sinks to the ram? Thanks again.

Remove the existing TIM with Xylene and or acetone than remove the residue with 99% pure IPA. I wouldn't recommend modifying the the shim at all. Thermal pads suck. Out of all the compounds I've used (and I've tried most of them), I like AS5 the best. Just apply a thin even coat as depicted on Artic Silvers site so that you create a good joint between the GPU and HS.
Read up on lapping before you do it. It can make the the HS uneven if you don't do it right. That's all the advice I have in me for now.
