How do you install thermal paste?

Recommended Posts

Use a very small amount, usually a small dot is enough for a processor. Some people prefer to smear or spread it across the CPU itself to cover it completely. However most thermal compounds  and their manufacturers suggest against this. I personally make a small bead line across the top of the processor going down the center from one edge to the next then spread it lightly making a thin light coat.

Should the "small dot" be the size of a pea? a dime?

 

Theres really no guide on how to do this that came with instructions. or this website.

I would say a pea at the most.. You really do not want a lot of thermal paste or it can get down into the socket or pins and cause the PC to not work

In my experience, anything more than a small pea sized spot right in the center is too much. it will spread on its own when you put the heatsink down and secure it.
