No problem =).

No, you don't need to use a credit card to spread it, the heatsink will do that when you go to mount it.

You don't have to spread the paste with anything yourself...you just let the heatsink do that when you mount it on top of the CPU after you've applied the paste.. and I posted a link on how to apply the paste already .

as funny as that is, (i read the same article) as5 is probably the best available tim on the market. mx-2 is slightly better, but costs alot more. Also, never, EVER, use your finger to spread the tim because the oils on your finger will jack with the thermal transfer.
