I am buying a Vantec Aeroflow, it says it comes with thermal paste, but doesnt say what kind. Is Artic Silver Ceramique, or Artic Silver 3 worth buying or will there even b a noticable difference. Which of the two is better? I dont think i will b overclocking, xp2200+. Any help would be much appreciated

you will get a small plastic bag of silicon thermal compound. that stuff sucks. if your going to over clock you should get as (silver not ceramic) if not just use what comes with it.

Good thing about ceramique is that is't not conductive.

From what I've read Ceramique is as good if not better than ASIII

I used to have respect for you, but now know you're either an idiot (as so many other "enthusiast" that believe whatever they're told by a company) or a liar. I've tested silicon (Radio Shack) against ASII and gotten only a very small difference. I even wrote a review on it for this forum a while back.

i said nothing of performance difference. i was talking about how long the stuff actually stays between the die and cpu. that silicon stuff is runny as hell and separates quickly. "I used to have respect for you, but now know you're either an idiot" -blow me

Never had that problem either, I've seen 10 year old silicon paste caked on a 486 and only dried out around the edges.

on a 486 chip it would have had to be pretty thick compared to a chips needs now, and considerably less heat.

My silicon has always been thick enough to maintain consistancy. But I don't use it any more. I've found that lithium based axle grease is nearly perfect and only cost around $3 a 16-oz tub. High melting point, takes nearly forever to evaporate, fills even tiny grooves very well, is made to conduct heat...
