Changing CPU thermal compound.

I have just taken the heatsink of a v1.0, cleaned it up and replaced with MX4.  It seem to work OK but the heat sink is not clamped to the CPU at all well.  I can rotate it with no trouble and even rock it side to side.  Were the original thermal pads adhesive?  Were they 1mm thick and I need to now pack the clamp out?  Any thoughts?  Thanks.

Gpu can slightly move when clamped.  CPU should be pretty tight clamped down even with arctic mx 2/4.
