My two cents for applying thermal paste: put a bb sized pellet on the center and mash it down with the hsf and add a little wiggle before securing it. I have had very even spreads with this method, and have 0% chance of introducing air bubbles into the thermal paste.

Oozing = Not good. Thermal compound has bits of metal in it. Metal + Mobo conduct = shorting out BAD! Big no no. Never let it ooze. Clean up that mess and redo it.

K, i redid my Arctic Silver 5 and put a pea sized amount and spreaded it. My cpu's temp is now at 47C full load under the stress test, and 41C idle. Is this still not so good for my cpu or is it an average Temperature?
