Hey gang,

I used ceramique to seat both my CPU/HS and my video card/arctic cooler. But I have seen a lot of people recommending AS5. Would I see any difference if I switched between the two? Would it produce a better heat transfer which could result in a better oc (on either part)?

My gut says it is not worth it and will not make a difference but I was curious to hear what others had to say.

Thanks!

The difference in temps between the two almost always falls within the margin of error for all the tests I've seen. The real advantage of ceramique is that it is safer than AS5 as it isn't conductive.
