    Purchased Cooler Master #DP5-6131D and ready to install but instructions are not clear. It says to apply Heat Sink Silicone Compound but not sure if this goes on the whole surface or if you leave the little square in the center clear of compound.

    The compound is applied to match the raised area on the CPU called the die. All you need is an extremely thin layer to make contact with the die.
