inchworm for me,
I forget where exactly I read this, but have heard that the heat from a CPU starts in the middle of the chip and spreads (mostly) up and down. So I put a thin stripe in the middle up and down (leave room at the top and bottom for expansion of paste). Now, I may be wrong, but it works for me
wtf is a Signature?
