Need help on applying Thermal compound

I bought some thermal compound today for a CPU that's going to be shipped to me in the next 2 days.
I've never applied thermal compound and don't know how much to use,
The processor i'm getting is a Quad phenom ii 920 and the thermal paste i'm going to use is a Dynex STC1001.
Can someone give me a quick guide on applying the thermal compound.
Thanks

  1. Give everything a good clean and remove thermal pad if there is one, then just a small dot.
