Does it matter if the paste dries out if the temps stay stable? I don't think so...
I have tested Kryonaut back to back with Noctua NT-H1, and Noctua was 1°C better on a fresh application, but after 3 weeks, it was Kryonaut that took the lead.

Inital temps on a fresh application on the GPU were this:
Kryonaut: 42°C
Noctua NT-H1: 41°C

And after 3 weeks (same results after 3 months btw)
Kryonaut: 44°C
Noctua NT-H1: 45°C

So it's Kryonaut for me. It seems to be more consistent in the long run. And I don't care if dries out or become a stone. As long as the temps are good, I'm fine with it.

I'm mainly asking as I am kinda fed up of buying TIM every so often and as a few PCs do go through my hands each month I'm looking into getting a 20g or larger tube of something that is as close to bulletproof as it can be.
I have a 5 year old tube that I cap and store in food saver. Still works just fine

Remember. Rated Shelf life is often times much lower than the reality. Specially with properly stored medicines 😛

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

It's maybe $1-$2 per application depending how much you use. Not exactly a massive hole in the budget for the type of machines people are building here. Spending an extra $1 to chop 1C makes as much sense value-wise as spending an extra $50 to chop 50C (which anyone here would do in a heartbeat).

Ok well I figured out the issue with the temps, I got a huge air bubble stuck in my front rad as it's ports are located at the bottom and this was causing abnormal temps in the GPU (probably due to low flow as the Poseidon is pretty restrictive), even though I did turn the PC upside down and shake it looks like doing it for a second time fixed the issue.

I do agree that Kryonaut is stupidly expensive but as someone already mentioned it's a pretty good deal perf/$ wise.
