Ceramique would be difficult to remove. The stuff's like glue. I've got it on my tec rig right now, and the tec itself is pretty much permanently attached to the cold plate. Given you'll have more leverage with a regular heat sink, just be fore warned.

I haven't had any issues with removing ceramique. It comes off just fine for me.

Thanks for the info. I'm planning on ordering all of the thermal compounds tonight. Do you think the ceramique would still stick like glue after only approximately a one day usage?

I'm planning on giving all the thermal compounds a one hour burn in period, test them on prime95 for half an hour, record, let it cool down for half an hour, and test again until I get three trials.
After that if I still have time left and have done 3 trials with each thermal compound, I'll do a reapplication and test it to get a better average.

Ceramique will be very difficult to remove and doesn't fit his "non-permanent" requirement.

Alrighty, so far I am about to purchase:
1.) Arctic Silver 5
2.) Arctic Silver MX-2
3.) OCZ Freeze Extreme
4.) IC Diamond 7
5.) ZALMAN ZM - STG1
6.) Tunic TX-2

Does anyone have any other candidates for thermal paste that'd you like for me to add? Note: I probably will not be getting Shinetsu x23 (seems like it requires reapplication after several months) or Coollaboratory Liquid Pro (heard it eats aluminum heatsinks). Links to cheapest vendor for any extra candidates are greatly appreciated.

Ceramique is NOT permanent.
