Totally BS this video, look what happen to a dot after 30 minutes of load. I must say than I preheat the CPU and the paste with a hair dryer, before put the head sink, like I always do , I will try latter without heat

The video was showing the air bubbles under the plexi before it was removed. Look at the zoom they did after the spread method.
