Best Laptop Paste

I've got a Triton 500 with a 9750H and a 2080 Max Q. Got both cranked and with the current paste I've got the CPU at about 80C with max fans and the GPU at 70C under load. What paste should I use to decrease temps a bit? Kryonaut seems to be the go to, but a few on here mentioned hydronaut for laptops, or a thermal pad? What's the best thermal material to help a laptop run a bit cooler?

When I was looking for reviews for Thermalright TF8 the winter before last, all I could find were people who used it on their laptops and had they high praise for it.

Those temps are pretty good as is. With a 2080 under that hood, I can't really imagine you getting temps much lower, given all gaming machines have shared heatpipes and such.

As for pastes, I tried IC Diamond, middling results with that one. I tried GC Extreme, seems to be the best fit for me, but Hydronaut seems to be the best paste out there outside LM.

With no undervolting and you are getting those temps?
Nice cooling on that laptop.
I used Thermal Grizzly Kryo on my Razer.
Helped me a bit but I still undervolt for long gaming sessions.

What Imglidinhere said.

With the temps you have you are fine, but if you want to play and change it, Thermalright TIM is good. I've been using it for many years.

use a thinner paste than kryonaut. Somthing like AS5 or cryorig CP7 or noctua NT-H1

make sure the fans and internals are free from dust as well as making sure the airflow into the laptop is good.

Yeah, The Triton has 2 fans for the GPU which is more than enough to keep it boosting almost constantly to 1500mhz+ with maybe a dip to 1290 every few minutes for a second or so. The CPU has only one fan though, and unfortunately it gets a bit warm and the 4ghz all core turbo drops to 3.5 every 60 seconds or so. Was hoping to get that turbo to last a bit longer if possible, but overall the main reason I got the Triton 500 was the huge performance offered in only an 18mm thin laptop

Most pastes are within margin of error. In essence you could use the same paste, remount and have a different result that might match a different paste. How much you want to pay for that margin of error is up to you.
