Just a couple of thoughts:

Arctic Silver is a compound that cures with a few hours of use. After a few heat cycles, the heat sink should be "stuck" to the transistor. If you break it loose checking, the old compound needs to be cleaned off and a new batch applied. Do not use excess (more than needed).

Silicone heat compound (grease) is rarely used now days as the new compounds of which I believe Arctic Silver is the best, are far superior to the old compounds and greases.
