Yep, depends on the cooler + compound. HDT coolers work best with the double line technique. The pea or the X are good for square bases. Some compounds spread easier than others, thus requiring less tim. Best bet is to mount the HS, then take it off. Verify the coverage and adjust as necessary. Don't be a tightass, thermal compound is cheap.
