Arctic silver or not?

I have a retail opteron 144, and intend to use the stock cooler. I have an old tube of arctic silver 3. Should I scrape off the stuff on the heatsink and go with the AS, or just go with the stock stuff? I've read some do better with the stock interface material.

Where you see that?
Could you post the link?
Many people put ArticSilver 3 or 5.
Shin Etsu is better thermalpaste but costs more.

If you don't intend to overclock your processor, the factory-applied lozenge of thermal phase change "bubble gum" works just fine.

Shin Etsu thermal paste is approved by AMD. Where to buy it is the question.
