It works exactly the way that wet fingers on your hot porcelain coffee cup transfer more heat to your fingers. Provided it gives good contact between the two surfaces with no gaps/bubbles, it can be as thin as you like. If it squeezes out when you press down the heat sink - then you've done too much. Less is more once you have coverage. Smile | :)

Otherwise, everything else between is more or less between tolerances.
