This is how it spreads out using an X of thermal paste applied. My AIO has a dip in the corner but the rest is good and flat.

Hi,
X clearly works best
From the center of the chip just go past about 1/2" with still pea size in center.
That should cover the entire chip.

I've spread TIM using strip off plastic card always, I can't say I've had massive squish over sides, used this on Intel/AMD, even on Threadripper.

I haven't got photo of my R5 3600 yet, but below is when I removed block off of R7 2700X after ~8mths, far right are just rough mockups I did while back to see how things are lying.

Spoiler!

I dont have any pics, But I researched the location of the chiplets and I/O die using derbaurs delid video, and applied a dab of paste on each chiplet location and a small vertical line on the I/O die location.

Don't forget to ground yourself

Wendell from Level1Techs recommends pea size dots of Thermal Paste on each chiplet locations. I haven't test it but spread method works well with TIM with low viscosity like MX-4 for example.

I Tried a 3 dot method via suggested by Level1Techs in the video below to see what would happen. I dropped approx 8c over regular peadot method in the middle however this also could be due to from the fan not being on in the rear of my Noctua U12A hard to tell unless i physically open my side panel and touch to see if the fan is on. However that being said on Average ryzen Master would show im at 60c while gaming World of Warcraft but after new application consistant 51c-52c.
