  1. Best answer
    Pea sized in middle is what AMD recommends themselves, and it works the best as tested by MANY people who overclock heavily.
  2. pea sized in the middle. it works for every cpu whether AMD suggests it or not.
  3. 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).
  4. Dot or line will suffice; I'd invest in a new thermal compound though.
