Default Arctic Silver Compund

I was wondering... if I get this compound....

http://www2.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16835100007

.... for this processor (I discovered it was fried as well as the mobo in a recent incident) since this CPU is rumored to run kinda hot...

http://www2.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16819116171

How much of the stuff do I actually apply? I checked the site and it doesn't say how much to apply to the CPU surface. It talks about a 0.001 inch layer... so do i just apply an extremely small drop and just set the heat sink on and it spreads as time goes on?

With AS5 you apply only a small dot the size of a BB to the CPU if it has a Heat Spreader, if its an older one like a P3 or an Athlon XP then a dot the size of a grain of rice.

Yea the size of a BB after you clean the HSF and CPU with 99% rubbing acohol, then you set it on top of the CPU and turn it slightly to the right then slightly to the left and then line it back up and attach it.

one of the best it is the best but it might take a while to put it on correctly but make sure it is a thin layer take a piece of paper next to it and it should be about the same size.

erm, when you get it spread out you dont wanna take that heatsink off..... dont worry about how thick it is right now, it will work right if you put a dot the size of a bb on there... i usualy put about 3 of the dots rofl...
