What kind of difference is there in heat dissipation between regular thermal grease and arctic silver?

i am no expert but from a variety of reading and posts in various forums AS vs paste/grease does provide a difference of a couple degrees celsius.

The consistancy is also quite different. I've applied the el'cheapo stuff and I've also applied Arctic Silver 2 & 5.

The el'cheapo stuff is comparible to whipped cream in a can, which lacks volume. Whilst the Arctic Silver was more like double cream and quite rich.

In my oppinion, the density would account for something.

The only thermal paste I've ever seen that really makes much difference (compared to the generic white stuff) is Shin Etsu.

Martin, I'm just curious, but did you ever try to enable the rest of the cache on your duron? If so how did it go?
