T.I.M battle – Old vs. New
My friend Ramiro did a versus between new and old TIM's and he has something new in his methodology: GPU's. One GTX480 with 4 TDP's and one HD5870 with 3 TDP's.

Thanks. It's working here on Google Translate. :)
LE: Ramiro's conclusions on short:
ARCTIC SILVER 5
A nice behavior compared to latest TIM's. If you have a decent TDP there is no reason to ditch your good ol' friend AS5.
ARCTIC COOLING MX-4
The goal to produce a MX-3 performance with better viscosity was achieved. Top performance TIM recommended both for casual users and enthusiast users.
Is one of his favorite TIM because is easy to apply and it has very good performance.
THERMALRIGHT CHILL FACTOR 3
Optimal viscosity and top performance. Silver Arrow and HR-02 come with it and kudos to TR for that.
ARCTIC COOLING MX-3
Top performer among traditional TIM's. Tricky to spread but again a top TIM.
ARCTIC COOLING MX-2
Still OK for casual users who doesn't want to squeezes the last °C from their CPU's.
Bottom line, MX-2/AS5 are still OK for majority of users and new TIM's performs practically almost the same.
