ceramic is better for subzero temps, while silver is better for us mere mortals with air or water.

Silver is better for really hot stuff like x1900xt(x) and many people recommend it,<br><br>
But I personally have had better results with ceramique when applying a dab and pressing on sinks/waterblocks to the LGA775 socket. It doesn't "squish" enough for the as5 to flatten all the way out sometimes I think.

Not to add to the confusion but I just started using <a href="http://www.crazypc.com/products/50111.html" target="_blank"><b>this</b></a> stuff. Haven't compared temps just yet but I'll let you know after I reseat all my blocks.

</div>You'd have to grab the 11g tube and just spray it everywhere. It's hard to get half a rice sized amount in the center of the cpu off onto the mobo. <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" />

</div> Agreed.<br />

Also ceramique is non conductive so is safe to use for certain applications where AS5 is not.
