How to professionally apply CPU Thermal Paste (CPU Thermal Grease)

In this Video I will show how-to properly apply CPU Thermal Paste to the Central Processing Unit of a Computer. There are a few requirements needed before beginning, they are : An old Credit Card, a pair of Scissors, 91% Alcohol, a lint-free Cloth and Brush, some latex Gloves, Cotton Swabs )Q-Tips) and CPU Thermal Grease.

Take an old unused Credit Card and cut a strip approximately 1/2" wide the length of the Card. Do not use any part of the Card that isn't completely flat. Then take the cut Strip and cut-off 1" of that. Make two small cuts on either Side of the Piece cut from the Strip approximately 1/4" from one End. Now, fold the Piece at a 90 degree angle making a small Handle. The Piece should look like the Letter "L" laying down on the long Part. This will be used to actually apply the CPU Thermal Paste to the top of the CPU. Do not apply Thermal Paste to the CPU Cooler, as the Surface Area is generally larger than the Top of the CPU and will result in an over-use of Thermal Compound.

Now acquire two or three Cotton Swabs with plastic Applicators (Sticks). These will be used for two different Operations. One, to clean-up any excess Thermal Paste after application. Secondly, to make a Scrapper to remove excess Thermal Paste from the previously made Applicator and put it back on the CPU for spreading. (…see Video for Instructions)
