how do I apply thermal paste to a powerbook g4 17" 1.67GHz?

I'm not sure what Thermal compound/paste to use where? I know it has
to be applied to the 3 chips (in the bottom of the right photo) where the heat
sinks line up; But I don't know if I need 2 different thermal pastes or if I can just use artic silver 5 on all three of them? When I disassembled the motherboard I saw that 2 different colored pastes were used(white and grey) but I don't remember which ones had grey and which ones had white on it. I'm guessing that the grey was artic silver compound and the white was a silicone compound, but i could be a mile off.

Im in over my head, can anyone help me out? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
