I used it for the first time on my most recent mount after reassembling my rig a few days ago actually. Using Phobya HEGrease and I'm not really seeing any temperature difference, albeit I may have a 1-2*C tighter grouping on my cores. Have always used the pea method before but had so recently done the die of my i7 with pro and a spread that I just kinda started spreading it out before I knew what I was doing.
Albeit for an IHS-Block TIM the Phobya is exceptional, spreads amazingly easy and gives far better temps than anything else I have used. Tried an application of Pro for IHS and Block and my coolest core was a degree lower but the spread was almost 10*C between the 4.
Just what I've experienced so far, and certainly not a very scientific test.
