You only want the smallest amount to form a seal with no gaps.
Naw a pea is just perfect. It's just enough to fill gaps. I've never had it spill over or even cover the entire heat spreader. Pea is too much if you lather it on both sides like daz does.

Are you eating GM peas???? Cuz i mean a small pea about the size of a .17 cal BB.
