Might want to give this a read. Some of their results aren't the greatest, like with IC Diamond (it's a somewhat difficult TIM to use because it's super thick). But it's a good chart to get an overall good idea of various TIM's performance.

Even if you don't use Arctic Silver, their website that shows how to put thermal paste on different CPUs is very helpful.

You really want to have your mind blown try Indigo Extreme

PS. Check out the 80 way TIM Round up link, also in my signature as the Applying TIM thing because the first 3 pages talk about the different methods of application.

According to the 80 Way,
Chill factor: C
AS5: A-
SEx23: A+
ummm im pretty sure AS 5 got an A+ on that test

Altrough i noticed 2 weird things .

this paste is like glue . it was a pain in the ... to spread it on the chip ,
and the second thing was after i booted up the first time , and ran prime95 to heat up i smelled a weird smell for a few sec (nothing like electrical burn) , more like fish oil lol .
