a Megahalem on a i5 and using mx-3 paste help and how thanks

Hi all new here and could do with some help.

I am building a i5 system and getting the a Megahalem on a i5 and using mx-3 paste, I was woundering what is the best way to appliy the paste a small pea or a small line through the 4 cores.

I am using a gentle typhone 1450rpm fan to and going to fit it to a asus pd55ad

I have herd this paste is the best out of the lot to and is it easy to appliy as this hs has a gear flat smooth base.

Any tips would be greatfull

thanks

Here's an article Olin wrote a while back describing the best methods for applying thermal compound, which should be what you're looking before. He also wrote an article on the best performing thermal compounds (as well as almost 100 others).
