Gameitall,

That is a wonderful price on an excellent component!

Now your CPU temps should be much, much lower!

Congrats!

Soar

Switch to Celsius, no one measures computer temps in Fahrenheit.

And you only need to use a little dab of thermal paste (about the size of a single grain of dried rice) right in the center of the cpu. Don't try to spread the paste, the weight of the heatsink will spread it for you.

for direct heatpipe contact coolers, i like to put the paste on and spread it around with a plastic baggy over my finger.

but like slaymate said, VERY little, a grain of rice size blob...
