I had great results for several years on CPU and GPU with IC Diamond paste.

Roughly a 5 degree drop in load temperatures after the paste gets some usage.

Well, the reason I can't give a Delta-T is because these tests were done over a period of time and in different locations. All I can give is the temps reported immediately before changing the paste, and then immediately after (less than 30min). The ambient temps between tests on the same CPU are within 1C of one another, and I would GUESSTIMATE that, as these were all done in houses with A/C, the ambient temps ranged from 68-74F (above 74F and I get uncomfortable, and below ~68 and I can start to feel the cold as well).

I will post some more tests that I've done on my own PC's (in a controlled environment), with Delta-T's, later!
