ASII v ASIII

I've had this tube of AS2 now for over a year... I've easily used it 30+ times on CPUs, about 10 times for old chipsets, gpus, and large CPUs. It just doesn't want to run out.

I'm thinking to get some new stuff... seems there is a concensus that AS3 is better, but how much better? Should I expect about 1c improvement or more? .. All things being equal, how much better is it?

Also, is there anything better? ... if yes, how much more?

I haven't found much difference. Perhaps its just me, but I can't tell any difference in performance between the two.

The AS3 seems somewhat "thinner" than AS2 though.

I've noticed that too. A friend has as3, and I've helped him with a couple of pcs... and for electical conductivity, I'm not too concerned. I know as2 isn't, and as3 is... and newer ones aren't but aren't as good either.

I saw a review of the latest thermal paste from the Arctic Silver outfit. It's called "AS Ceramique," and it clearly outperformed AS3. I don't believe it, frankly. Too many reviews are puff pieces. I think this one joins the 100,000 other BS reviews.

My tube of AS1 may last for a very long time. Mine may still be around ten years from now.

Sure you're right, kat. 2C can be quite important to overclocker's. Jill and John Anytown, from Jones USA?
I imagine that they don't know and don't care.

Ceramique--the latest gotta have it from Arctic Siver is free of metal. As AS swore up and down that AS didn't conduct electrons, except in an extremely thin layer under enormous pressure, I can't see how Ceramique is so wonderful.

I'm very careful with Arctic Silver "I." You learn to be, the stuff leaves a tattletale silver stain behind even after careful cleaning.
Now that AMD voids your warranty if anything other than a thermal phase change pad(go figure. I can't!) or two thermal pastes from, I assume Japan, are used I suddenly see the attraction of this fantabulous Ceramique.

Coming and going, I tell's ya.
