    This thread seems appropriate for this question, whats the standard thermal paste is used on the Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro 64.

    it's all depend on how flat is cooler base, for example my GTZ water block is so perfectly flat. I only used 1/16" thick of a thin line method. If not, normally I use 1/2 dime size method, drop it right at center of CPU and let it spread out. I hardly use credit card spreading method.
