A pea size amount is actually too much.

What I do is put a TINY blob in each corner of the CPU and a tiny blob in the center. I've found this method works really well and it's resulted in 27c idle temps, and 47c load temps on my sig rig. Thats the method I'd recommend

I ran out of the TIM that came with the D-14 because I felt like I couldn't get it right.

The pea method does not cover the entire CPU..and logically speaking it seems best to cover the entire cpu to get best heat transfer no?
No, the core is very small compared to the whole heatspreader on the CPU. If you cover the whole thing, you'll get air bubbles and worse temperatures. I usually don't do the pea method, but I put a vertical line as explained here.

What about tinting the heat sink? I remember when my friend put the artic 5 on there that you could not see through it. I've been told you want it thin to where it is almost see through.

So the core is say 5m wide but the heat sink cover is 10mm wide? Just seems like you would want to have the whole heat sink covered from a engineering stand point.

Here is something strange too.. when I overclock to 4ghz. the temps stay pretty much the same as they are now. I up the voltage to 1.3125 but if I go up to 1.32 the temps get to mid to high 40's low 50 (50-51). I since ran stock setting with my ram timed like it should with the voltage it needs. Thats why the picture has stock clocking with turbo mode.

Is it true that multiplier needs to be odd number?

reapplyed Tim using the line test... temps are down 1-2c.

Also I change the voltage from 1.3125 at 4ghz to 1.25v and the temps didn't change. I though if you lower the voltage you will have less heat?

The instructions on the Arctic 5 website say to apply a little TIM, work it across the entire CPU with a credit card, then wipe it off with a lint free cloth (I use coffee filters). Don't use arctic clean or alcohol to clean it at this phase or you'll defeat the purpose. The surface will have a haze to it, but you should still be able to read the markings on the CPU.
