Its called a spreader.

I think you put a dime sized amount on a spreader, a rice sized amount on a core.

EDIT: Above information completely incorrect. My apologies.

theres prolly different inscructions for different kinds of thermal material but if your talking about AS5.. your way off.

If its an exposed core like a socket A... then you spread the AS5 covering the core with a layer as thin as you can make it, using a strait edge razor blade worked well for myself. as thy also mention it in there instructions.. thy also have pictures.

If you using it ona cpu with Heatspreader like a A64 or P4, you put a 1/2 dot of a grain of rice size right on the center, then press the heatsink on top of it evenly so it spreads out evenly.
-----------------------

Note - its seems pritty obsured to post these instructions when there is a link right there that takes your right to them, and thy have pictures.

im only explaining this, because someone asked for help, and instead of reading the proper instructions... you take the word of someone posting inacturate information over a link to the manufactures web site?

you might not wont to let that happen again.

My apologies, but I put the amount specified on my Athlon 64, and know what happened? Temps ranging from 54 to 60..

Granted, my computer seems to have massive cooling problems. (My room is hot as crap, and theres nothing I can do about it.)

I told him I thought so, not to go do it.

But your irght, I'm wrong, and I shoulds have gotten more sleep.

Ugh.
