you mean like not having it at all? or different pastes?

different pastes can range from 0-20 C differences. if you dont have any thermal paste, your CPU will probably overheat.

Replacing old paste, or a bad paste application (say on a GPU) can make a dramatic difference.

My cards got up to 70*c @ 80% fan with no load. After paste install 45*c @ 50% fan

You need to use thermal paste, period.

If you don't have it, the heat transfer will not take place very well because of air pockets, the thermal paste fills in the air pockets to help with the heat transfer. Without the thermal paste, your CPU will more than likely overheat and your PC will shut down because not enough heat transfer is taking place.
