I have just bought an Intel Core i5 12600K and was wondering which is the best way to put thermal paste on it. Usually I use the "pea" drop technique but that is for "square" CPU. Since LGA 1700 is a rectangle I'm not quite sure how to put thermal paste on it. I have a Gigabyte AiO cooler.
I did a small line down the center over where the die is located and allowed the cooler to do the spreading.
