Title:

White thermal paste vs Arctic Silver?

Text:

Any idea why the thermal paste on the iMac video card's two RAM chips is the white spongy type, instead of something like Arctic Silver, as is used on the graphics chip itself?  Can Arctic Silver be substituted for the white paste?

Device:

iMac Intel 20" EMC 2133 and 2210
