I put more than a drop on my cpu, a steady thick line down the middle of the cpu. That was it. I went to change my heat sink and it was thick across my whole cpu and started to run down the side. I just couldn't belive how little they told you to put in the instructions. They don't lie.
Yup, just do what the instructions say. I think it's a blob the size of a grain of rice? or half a grain of rice? It's amazing how much it spreads out.
