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.
Have fun.

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.

PROLIMATECH PK-1
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.
