That method will work fine for your E6500.
What cooler are you using?

Center dot always works. If you want to be creative, use two parallel lines. However, you should note that AS5 takes some time to cure. Cheers.

Just remember - less is more (better).
And don't get any AS5 anywhere but on the CPU.
