I thought you were supposed to spread a thin layer of thermal paste over the CPU and put the heat sink on but I have hear people say that you should put a small pea size dot in the middle of the CPU and just squish it with the heat sink. Which one is correct? Another question is how better cooling performance do you get from removing the integrated heat sink rather than leaving it on?
