And some do actually make a good difference.

so true. but with most half decent compounds their thermal conductivities are relatively close, so yeah I guess it comes down to ease of application and removal as well as electrical and capacitive properties.

For example, I was looking at IC7 diamond paste, but they want 50psi or more applied. And some of the liquid metal products leave a residue that cannot be removed or spill some on your board and you're in trouble.
