2 rices, and let the pressure and heat do the rest

for stock heatsinks with circle bottoms, i use the rice/pea sized spec and natural pressure. for ones like my hyper 212 with a square base, i use a credit card and make a 1mm thin layer on my cpu, fill in the heat pipe crevices on the cooler itself.
