Pea sized in middle is what AMD recommends themselves, and it works the best as tested by MANY people who overclock heavily.

I would use the line method with a slightly more viscous thermal paste, given the FX CPU's larger die (thus a larger hot spot).

Dot or line will suffice; I'd invest in a new thermal compound though.
