My System Specs


You want about a grain of rice worth in the middle of the cpu and yes, you want to remove the pre-applied stuff if using your own as too much isn't any good either.
Locate the cooler in the right place and press down firmly, lift it off and have a look if it's spread over the full cpu.
If needed add a tiny bit more for full coverage / clean off any excess that is going over the edge of the CPU and then fix the block in place.

You should be looking for the minimum amount to fill any imperfections between the 2 surfaces. no more.

I would make sure it's actually better compound first though. Why remove the current stuff for worse results?
