    The break in for most of these products when applied in the manner you've done is 200 hours so comparison of temps prior to this break in time is premature and will give you an inaccurate comparison.

    The product (the paste) takes 200 hrs. of running before it reaches it's stable state for temperature dissipation .. So the only accurate temp is after the 200 hours .. Accurate comparison to the old temps can only be done then.

    ya but we are only talking a few degrees celsius. in fact processors can take pretty high temps and still be ok. I was lazy to reapply paste one time and had a Core 2 Duo up to 75c regularly w/ no issues. normal is 40-60.
