The instructions for Arctic silver 3 did say that you should rub a tiny bit of compound onto the heatsink, and the light haze was the indication you had the correct amount.

Wouldnt bother with the sellotape stuff though, the glue is likely to contaminate the surface. Just a thin line straight from the tube is best imho.

Havent really read the latest advice from Arctic to see if they still recommend prepping the heatsink in that way.
