Polishing compounds are a no no. They look nice but actually take away from heat transfer. Don't get sucked into looks, just go for even flatness. (Who sees the bottom of you heatsink anyway?)

BTW, i found it much better to apply almost no pressure on the heatsink. If I applied pressure I got a noticable crowning effect. Periodically check the botton of the heatsink for crowning.
