ceramic, silver or silicone compound what do u guys think is the best, i swiched to ceramic and it helped a tad, n e thought comments reviews personal experiences would be nice to hear, thanks again guys
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>Some of the experienced water gurus swear Ceramic is better on water systems as well.<br />
I use Arctic Silver 5 right now, but plan to expirement when my water system is done.<br />
