What is worse...too little or too much? I see different amounts in pictures. I have heard you should use a saran wrapped finger to push in and spread it evenly, then use a credit card to scrape off the excess, leaving a flat surface...using it almost like spackle to fill in drywall?

Thoughts?

Too much is worse. Use a very thin layer. A couple of rice sized dots or so should be enough thermal paste.
