XDream III - thermal compound/pad?

After you apply the thermal compound, give it a little time, and it will harden a little. That's when you want to install the heatsink or water block.

You don't wait for it to harden. You install the heatsink right after you apply the compound so you don't get dust on the die. Also, for the AMD 64 chips, since they come with a heat spreader, the pressure of the heatsink will not be able to spread the BB size amount if it's hard.

Thanks a lot for the comments. I think it took me 1 min. to spread the AS with credit card. I tried the bb size method but it wasn't dead centered when I squished it so I spreaded it manually. Let's see how it goes a few days later.
