Try this.

- Place a dot (half a grain of rice) size of AS5 in the middle of the IHS.
- Get a plastic bag to cover your finger, and spread the AS5 evenly across the IHS as if you want to remove it all. Try to make it thin to the point that you can almost see the text on the IHS.

Now, you can either do the same on the HSF or place a dot of AS5 on top of the evenly spread AS5 if there are any signs of concavity.

Take off your heatsink. clean the IHS, and the heatsink with alcohol....

Then put a tiny dot of AS5 in the middle (about the size of a grain of rice..)
Then push the heatsink straight down..give it a tiny twist, back and forth (without moving it)...then tighten down your tuniq.

On the AS5 site, they just say to put a small dot on and then just put the heatsink on. The weight of an heatsink(especially a tuniq) will do the rest.

The AS5 site actually says to apply a line of AS5 down the middle of the IHS.

The dot method is for "Large Single Core Intel CPU w/Heatspreader".

This the one for dual cores: Arctic Silver 5 Instructions for a Large Dual Core Intel CPU w/Heatspreader

There is a video tutorial on this site somewhere. Let me find it.
EDIT:

This is for a video card, but pretty much the same things apply to a CPU. I used the sanded-down side of an old credit card, some people use razor blades, to spread the AS5 on the heatsink. I just put a tiny bit in the middle of the CPU and applied it. I got 10 degrees better immediately!
