I am building a Ryzan Threadripper 2950X system. Parts in hand, just need to know the thermal compound pattern for the following:


Arctic MX-4 thermal compound

bequiet! Dark Rock Pro TR4


If you please. I've seen different patterns from different people ranging from poorly drawn lines along the length of the CPU by the bequiet! recommended installation, to 5 dots, and on from there.


But can anyone please attach a picture, some illustration, or a recommended pattern?
