Thermal Paste Comparison 2015 – Which is The Best Thermal Paste? - Page 2

post #11 of 36
Hello

Currently, I use the Phobya Hegrease Extrem (such as Gelid Extrem) and 5930K with a waterblock EK Waterblock (nickel)
Is it worth it to test a "liquid metal"? Coolaboratory ultra" or other ?

Or I would have about the same temperatures (1 or 2 ° difference)

Thanks for your help

You will have much lower temps if you use a liquid metal TIM. They really are amazing. But you have to be very careful because if the liquid metal leeks onto your motherboard it's going to be fried.

Use liquid metal TIM's with caution.

Thanks for your answer

According to the tests (as on the previous page), the gain is 1 to 2°C compared to the Gelid Extem, Grizzly Kryonaut, etc...

Honestly I wouldn't even mess with it if I were you. I've been using IC Diamond with great results, I recently ran out and might try the Grizzly Kryonaut next but I won't touch the liquid metal stuff. I know it's the best but it's also conductive, IC Diamond and Grizzly Kryonaut are not, which is a big selling point to me. If I mess up and some gets on the board it won't hurt it at all, I don't know why anyone would use TIM that is conductive.

I am currently using Grizzly Kryonaut, but I have a batch of Indigo Extreme to try. I will let you know my temperature results before / after once I have installed the Indigo Extreme.

For the same reason someone prefers a TVR over a Porsche smile.gif
The Porsche will keep you safe, will keep you from going over the edge (like the physical limits of rubber on asphalt)... the TVR will allow you to go onto the sharp edge... but if you go over the edge.. it will kill you... But it does allow for a much more intense experience smile.gif

You clearly don't know much about cars.

Back to topic please.

Do you like the Kryonaut? Is it easy to apply and work with?
post #19 of 36
I have not benchmarked its performance vs other TIMs. I do have practice of using EK's TIM, which is easier to use than Kryonaut. Kryonaut is a bit more gloopy, but it is still not exactly difficult to apply it. So I would not worry about application too much.

Like I said earlier, I have been using IC Diamond and that stuff is really thick. It's almost unusable until you heat up a glass of water and put the syringe in it for about 5 minutes, then it is really easy to work with. I was just curious if you had to anything like that with the Kryonaut. Thanks!
