I use a basic simple silicon compound in between my XP2400+ core and heatsink base...the same silicon I use in between my power transistor projects and their heatsinks. So can someone orient me further about my use of this thing? Like how many fry-hours before it becomes efficient, exact time to replace again, temperature tolerance, temp to fry...oh yeah how about arctic silver 5 too?

The tech specs for each compound differ greatly. I say replace it once a year along with a complete cleaning of all components. I take about 25 hot to cold cycles for most compounds to cure.' ">
Some good data in the above link:
