I cannot recommend a q-tip since you may leave fibers, I may even denounce q-tip method for that reason. Just stay steady with your strokes and brace your wrist on something for finer detail.

 

Conductonaut comes with some special Q-Tips though.  The cotton on the end isn't all soft, squishy, and loose; it is wrapped or pressed tightly around the stick.  I did not experience any loose fibers with the included swabs...I however, would not recommend a traditional white Q-Tip.

 

 

Do you have a pic of what the brushes you are using  look like?  The little brush included with the CLU is too soft to get the Conductonaut to do anything it seems.

It doesn't stick initially, and wants to cling to itself and form a ball, so you have to put a small dab on the die first and work it for a little bit.  I have never used CLP, but the way Conductonaut acts it sounds similar to what I have read about CLP.

 

CLU is definitely easier to apply.  With my CLU, I never used the syringe to dispense onto the die.  I would just squirt the tiniest bit into the syringe cap, and then dip the brush inside the cap.  This has allowed me to put the thinnest layer possible down.

 

The Conductonaut didn't go so well for me on the first application where I tried to leave it thin.  After a couple IBT runs I wasn't satisfied with temperatures so I took the IHS back off to find it didn't stay in place for some reason.

 

Conductonaut Shifted (Click to show)

 

 

 

After applying a little extra and spreading it back around, temps got slightly better.

 


 

Currently, I am of the opinion they are essentially equivocal in the performance department, with the CLU possibly working ever so slightly better.

 

Unless someone else gets different results from what I did, my present stance for a purchase would be CLU because it requires much less effort to spread/paint it onto the die.

Your supposed to spread it on the inside of the lid to. That's how I did my 3770k with clu. I just got a 5820k and had conductonaut, so I used that for the tim, put it on the lid and cpu block. That's also what the directions say.

I've never applied the CLU to the inside of the IHS and have always gotten the desired results.  

 

I do not use LM on top of the IHS due to the minimal performance gain, and the difficulty in removing it from bare copper.  If I had nickel plated components, it may be a different story.

 

This needed to be a direct comparison of how the CLU was implemented in my scenario.  Using Conductonaut on top of the IHS would probably have yielded better results, but that wouldn't have been a fair comparison.

would using the nail polish method of protection also work on a GPU? thinking about putting some conductonaut on mine since im switching over to water and have a tube of it waiting to be used on my cpu whenever i get around to my skylake delid.

I don't see why it wouldn't.  Generally speaking GPUs cores run quite cool once under water, so not as many people run it for GPU.  

 


 

From the looks of your sig you have GTX 970's which already run cool on air.

 

I used a Kraken and 120 AIO on a GTX 970 and the temperatures were quite outstanding.  It was the reference board Zotac with the mini two fan cooler.  With an Antec 620 AIO at stock settings the core ran in the low 40's.  Because the core temp was so low it boosted to 1367 with all stock settings even though the advertised boost clock is 1216.  

 

Even with a BIOS edit to allow 25% power, 6% was stock, and overclocked boosting to 1500+, the core temps were in the low 50's for games and high 50's for Valley benchmarking.

 

You can see the performance in screenshots form my 290/970 comparison: http://www.overclock.net/t/1436497/official-amd-r9-290x-290-owners-club/34380_20#post_23458320

 

One thing I did learn from running the AIO on the 970 is that the VRMs still get VERY hot even though the core runs cool.  If you were going to strive to cool something better with a waterblock it would be the VRMs.  Get yourself some Fujipoly Ultra Extreme 17 W/mk rated, AKA Sarcon XR-M, thermal pads and use those for the VRMs.  I experienced a 20% drop in VRM temps on my 290's.

@Roboyto

Thanks for the info, ill just stick with the MX-4 for now and if temps seem to high still ill try the LM. And yea, i've become all to familiar with the temperamental VRM on Maxwell cards, they do not like to play nice once they get toasty. im hoping my alphacool block at least does a little bit to cool them off but its for the most part just acting as a "pass-through"(couldn't think of a better word) heat sink for the VRM since the waterblock doesn't really touch them but it touches the Fins/body that touch the VRM. ill definitely pick up some of those thermal pads though so thanks for suggesting that.

I cannot recommend a q-tip since you may leave fibers, I may even denounce q-tip method for that reason. Just stay steady with your strokes and brace your wrist on something for finer detail.

I did use the included rubbery black swabs, they work fine but I found you have to dab at the balls a whole bunch to start to get it to spread. It spread fine after a little effort.

Don't see why not but as was stated usually regular paste works more than good enough on a GPU die.

MX-4 will do. 

 

If it is the Nexxos 970 block you should be just fine with some good pads.  Even though the VRMs are cooled passively, it is a massive heatsink to dissipate the heat.  If they are still giving you problems, you can always buy a backplate and use some pads to utilize the backplate as a 2nd passive heatsink.

 

I measured 132C on the VRMs of that Zotac with the stock heatisnk overclocked/volted before there was a driver crash and the card reset to stock settings.

Anyway...back to delidding shenanigans before we stray too far offtopic.gif
