the razor blade method is the best, but its very tricky, and only works with certain heatsinks, but feel free to tell me the several dozen times i've done this and seen the results compared the pea method are wrong
Razor blade method the best? Do you actually know that the HSP is like 5 times orsomething bigger than the HSP? The main core of heat comes from that die size.
Using less is always better.
The Pea method fills more gaps than the spread method.
