  1. should i use two line methods on pipes. small thin lines.. this the only way know looks reliable to me.
  2. I usually put a dot (roughly pea-sized) in the middle of the cpu-heatsink and spread it towards the edges with a piece of cardboard.

    Whether or not this is the professional way to do it - i don't know, but my 2500K @ 4,0Ghz gets around 51c under full load.

    I've built around 100-150 systems, and I've always applied thermal paste like this.

    Proven and tested, a single small pee-size goo of T.I.M. is sufficient.

    What is the best way to apply thermal grease?

    If you fasten the heatsink properly to the mobo, sitting square on the CPU, there is absolutely no reason why it should not.

    Good luck.
