Yeah, it's thicker than the usual AS. But otherwise is great. And it's nonconductive . I currently use it with very good results, nothing to complain about.Jognt said:ceramique... hmm, ive heard good and bad things about ceramique, usually the people that use it are quite happy with it, some prefer it over AS5...
go for it if you cant wait for the next shipment of AS5
(cant remember what the cons were of ceramique, maybe it was thick to apply)

CCW said:Its a good idea also to give Arctic Silver some burn-in, the more burn-in you give it the lower your temperatures will be. The way I usually burn-in is using heatsink not recommended for the speed I run the proicessor at and I also raise the voltage. This isnt recommended by AMD at all and I dont accept responsibility for anything damaged if this method doesnt work for you but its how I do it.
wait...what?? how does that have to do with the heatsink u are currently using, when u take the heatsink off of the processor u are burning in w/ AS5, and replace it with the better heatsink, u will see a temp change cuz after it burns in and is left at it's final "phase", if u mess with it after in the fnl phase, the connection with the heatsink and cpu is messed up and ull have to reapply it
