A8 High Heat, Correct Thermal

Hello
could sombody please tell me the correct way to apply TIM to my A8-6600k as the "pea" makes it run hot on idle.
i have a EVO 212 on it so it has a decent cooler but TIM has never been my strong point.
a few people have mentioned trying to layer it paper thin over the entire top but the 212 was such a pest to install i dont wish to remove it without the correct infomation, unfortunally as i use my phone as a dongle and internet here is dial-up speed i cant view youtube saddly =[
would the paper thin advice work?
also an FYI ive overclocked it from 3.9 to 4.2 which ran fine on the stock cooler.

btw if im in the wrong place for this im sorry about that.

thank you for that but i did view that site and the PDF an it kinda confused me like no tomorrow, when it comes to TIM im extremely stupid as ive never done a aftermarket cooler on a pc in the 10 years ive worked on them. is there any advice you can give on correct application i mean is the thin film thing a better idea than the "pea"?

it should not be a pea size. should be a size of a grain of white rice. thinking you put to much on that will cause it to over heat.

Well if it is running hot on idle I would start over. Cleaning off and adding new and making sure heat sink is fasten down correctly

not being rude im going to take this elsewhere as this hasnt be awnsered fully, i only asked one question is the film advice a good idea or not and FYI the Evo 212 is fastened properly as all 4 screws are down via tourqe so all 4 are seated to the point that the cooler sits square

well to answer the question if the layering paper thin would be better then their is only one way to find out is to try it. but it is your choice to seek help else were. but I am sure other here will give their advice.

you never said what your idle a load temps were so we really do not know if its really running hot or not.
