  1. When it comes to thermal paste, less is more.
    The pea method is the most commonly recommended way of doing it, which is to put down a blob of paste about the size of a pea in the middle of the CPU. Then mount your heatsink, using the pressure of screwing the heatsink down to spread the paste over the CPU. Give the heatsink a little twist when your done to spread the paste a bit more.
  2. Go here and use according to your cpu - http://www.arcticsilver.com/instructions.htm
