When reading the Arctic Silver application instructions is said "Put a small amount of Arctic Silver onto the center of the heat spreader/CPU Cap" whate exactly is the heat spreader? Does it mean the heat sink?

I think it might be the heat sink thats hotter which is good because then the CPU is cooler and if it is the CPU then that usually happens for the first 200 hours of use.

The Heatspreader is on the CPU itself.

You put a BB sized amount on the CPU's heatspreader (the center)
