I never really thought about it, but I just put a couple of splats in the middle and let the rest even out.

Dot in the middle and then just natural pressure with the applied fan.

2 years now, still having 27-30 idle temperature, and usually not over 45-50 when playing during summer.

The claim: I play what's fun.
The truth: Video games aren't entertaining enough, I must chide others for choosing to play something I won't.

I've always spread it. I usually make a small dot and spread it. I've been doing this for years and it has always worked for me.

Usually just the pea in the middle and let the pressure from the heatsink do the rest.
