Does anyone have experience with this product?
Would the Arctic Silver 5 be better? What's the difference?
Getting ready to order some and I was wondering if someone has tried both and if so which do you prefer.....

The ceramique is a thicker paste. I found it was a little harder to spread. Works fine though. Personally, I would go with AS 5. Works great without any hassles. :)

Thanks marqmajere, that's what I'm wanting to see is a few personal opinions.

Ceramique is a non-conductive thermal paste where AS5 can possibly conduct a current due to the silver content. I have used both and have gotten good results. AS5 will help control you temps a little more especially if you overclock generating more heat.

Exactly, Ceramique is non conductive. AS5 is the better grease. Cermaique is good if you are a little worrysome about it spilling over when placed on video memory.

AS5 is not suspected to be conductive. It is suspected to be capacitive, though.

I use Ceramique because it is easier to apply and it is easier to get the HSF off, and in case some truth is in AS5 being capacitive.

The performance of Ceramique is very close to AS5.
