Installing temperature probe on S939 CPU

What is the best way to install a temperature probe on an Athlon 64
3200+ CPU?  Do I simply insert the probe between the heatsink and the
processor, or is there another way?  I am concerned that this may have
an adverse effect on the contact between the CPU and the heatsink; is
this true?
Thanks in advance,

Yes, do not do it! Mount a probe on the bottom of a HS as closest as
possible to a CPUs heat spreader & fixit there with a piece of soft
rubber somehow ...
