Thermal silver grease

#1
my dad bought me some silver grease that he saw in a store, i would like to use it but i ahve some wuestions first, the computer i am going to use it on is an amd 2000+ cpu with stock heat sink, now first, there is this pink stuff on the heat sink that you had to peal off a cover and just stick the cpu to.
is this stuff better than the silver stuff i have ? and if not, do i need to remove this pink stuff before i add the silver stuff and does anyone know if there is a special way to do it insted of scraping it off with a screwdriver?? here is a pic of the pink stuff

don't use a screw driver...

use coarse cloth (not hard mind) and some water to wipe it off...

dont expect to use the cloth again as this grease is unlikely to come out :)

once again DON' T USE A SCREWDRIVER...

ummmm just take off the old put a little dab on the heatsink and then put the heatsink on the chip only use a little as the heatsink pushes pretty hard and itll squish the silver stuff pretty thin :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
