How do you apply thermal paste to an Athlon 64 3000? It's the socket 754 (or whatever 700 one it is). Since the top of the process looks like a giant diode, what part do you put it on? The whole thing?

 

I ordered it retail for now (no ocing yet) and have the standard thermal compound that come with the package. Should this work or should I put some AS 5 on it? If so, how do I apply it to this proc?

If you go with Arctic Silver 5, you should not spread it over the entire surface.

 

The site instructions state that a small (about the size of 1.5 grains of rice) smack bang in the centre is what you need, and don't spread it.
