Arctic Silver 5 + CM 212 + i5-2500K

I'm having a tough time figuring out what to do for the thermal paste pattern for the CM 212+ and the i5-2500K.

The Arctic Silver website says to use the vertical line method when applying paste for the i5-2500K. But I dont think that'll work so well if I'm using the CM 212+. Any ideas what method I should use when applying thermal paste?

For the 212 what you want to do is put a blob in the middle of your cpu (a little bigger than a pea) And then with the bottom of the heatsink you will spread it out.
