put a small amount on then spread it to a light, paper-thin coat over the core.then put the HS on it.

if i do it wrong will the c.o.p. react fast enough to save my cpu?

it won't heat up that fast ...get into the BIOS and check your temperatures first thing...then watch them for a minute or two to see if they go up dramatically (it will go up fairly quickly anyway)

k, can i put a thicker coat of paste on the core, not too much for overflow, but enough to where i know its touching? and will a little overflow off the core screw stuff up (as long as its not interfering with the things on top or the L1-L7 cut things)

No, it doesn't really matter if it overflos, but you shouldn't be putting enough on for it to overflow - it only needs to be on the core to provide better contact between it and the heatsink

Don't worry, it's tough the first time because you don't want to screw anything up...but making sure you don't get ahead of yourself will ensure success.
