i do just a grain of rice on my 3900x. Always get good spread with it

yeah im going to use the nh-d15 cooler and the included thermal paste which spreads really well, so ill probably do a grain of rice

 

I was wondering what the best method to apply thermal paste to the 3900x was. I have seen some say pea sized and others say the pea size is to small and to do the X shape instead.

I mean, my 3900x is always too fucking hot for no reason. Even with an NH-D14 class cooler, the method to thermal paste application doesnt really matter much unless its a REALLY big chip. ie threadripper

Specs v-v
