Ok here is what you need. An old plastic card and the thermal paste are items that you will need. I put a drop on about the size of half of a pea and then use the card to spread the paste around till it evenly covers an area about the size and thickness of a dime in the center of a processors cover.
If you have any question about making sure that the heatsink is seated correctly remove the motherboard from the case and mount the HSF (heatsink/fan) on the board outside of the case and then remount the board into the case.
