I've heard so many people say the size of a "grain of rice". But I've seen a picture where they apply a straight line of TP on the cpu. So, I'm not really familiar with it.

Since it's a dual core, you would apply a line on the CPU, forgot which way though. Who remembers my comment on putting the penny between the CPU and HSF or my other one on diamond paste?

Do you actually have to do it that way? Or just a dot of AS5 or MX-1 and it spreads out evenly?

Dude is doing it the hard way.

Clean the top of the CPU and the base of the heatsink with cotton swabs and alcohol. Put a dab of thermal paste in the center of the heat sink, at least a grain of rice but less than a pea. Seat the heatsink and mount it. Done.

And, just because they are selling the paste next to the processor doesn't mean you need it. I would think it would come with a stock thermal pad.

Please correct me.

Edit: And on an OT note, looks like the prices are right in line with what we were predicting, $195. That made me happy
Yes, the TP that comes with the AF7 is the MX-1 one of the best TP around, better than AS5.
