The difference will depend on the CPU power, cooler efficiency and smoothness, how well the old thermal paste worked and how you apply the AS5. The rule is "thin", just enough to make a visible layer covering the heat sink. Also make sure there is enough pressure on the cooler clip. Modify it by putting some card board or something under the clip if it's slack.
The "burn in" time as you call it will also depend on those things, how long it takes for the paste to get into just where it's needed and to be pushed away from everywere else.
