Default quick question about thermal paste, please reply ASAP thanks.

Hi I have just received my parts today and I am about to apply some Mx1 thermal paste. But how much do I apply?!!? Never done it before you see, I always used ones that came with the coolers.

Please reply ASAP, thanks!!

Just apply a rice grain sized dot, in the middle of the processor, and let the heatsink spread it out, when you seat it.
