The amount of thermal paste applied to the CPU core only, will be approximately the size of a grain of rice. After that has been applied, spread evenly with a razor, credit card, or something similar, until you are left with a nice, even, paper thin layer of thermal paste.

Make sure you clean off any old thermal material that was previously on the processor with 70% alcohol, or stronger.

Mayhaps the smartest approach just may be to go to the manufacturers site and look at their instructions:
http://www.arctic-cooling.com/...s/in..._mx1_retail.pdf' ">http://www.arctic-cooling.com/...install_mx1_retail.pdf

But then again that probably would be too difficult.......

Mark9 not that daft m8..in my first post i said i went to the site for instructions you boon!! and it only gave instructions for another proccessor and not mine wasn't 100% sure..bye the way this stuff was a sod to put on..seemed a bit oily and wouldn't cling to the core..and yes i did clean the core and the heatsink with tim cleaner. .cant realy tell if its any good yet as it takes a while to get optimal performance..around 45 celsius idle which is a bit high for me..well see how it goes
