Check out this review. This shows 5 just beating ceramique. I do know that 5 takes like 200 hours to reach its full potential. While yes 5 is better, ceramique ain't half bad itself and either will work just fine.
Another sidenote, neither are eclectically conductive, but 5 is capacitive.
I've been using AS5 for the past 2 years with pretty good success on various CPUs. Currently running an i7 920 D0 @ 3.33GHz with 1.056v under a Sunbeam CCF. Temps generally don't break 60C under load, and that's in an Antec P180B no less.
Ceramique is non conductive, so you don't have to worry abut it shorting anything "if" it spreads out over the cap, if that is a problem at all.
Apart from that and the lower curing time, Ceramique doesn't have any other advantage over AC5.
