What is the difference between the arctic silver that is formulated for small contact area and that formulated for large contact area?
Correct me if im wrong (i probably am) but the stuff inside is the same right? just like the nozzle is bigger or smaller, smaller for tbirds/durons ect and large contact for ..what? old pentiums? I didnt think theres a difference between the actual materials?
According to the folks that make AS, there is a small difference in the silver content of the two pastes. Does this mean that it's against the law to use the wrong kind on a CPU? Gimme a flippin' break!

Now that the Arctic Silver 2 is out... gimme a flippin' break!
