Kryonaut + Conductonaut. Indigo price is mad and it's not even correlated to its performance. Unless you go for LN2 or dry ice overclocking, do not consider regular paste under IHS.

anyone remember when people used to make a thread just about every week asking if they could OC their PC higher if they stuck it in a mini fridge?

I think thermal paste threads are the modern 2019 reincarnation.

There are some newer higher thermal conductivity pastes, like those Thermalright and maybe other. I'm fine with Gelid GC Extreme.

The problem rather is which one can you find to buy and isn't overpriced.

If the Kryonaut runs like a river, I would run away from it. Nothing worse than thin running pastes if you want it to last and be used universally.

Thank you to all.
My concept has changed, now I am planning only Direct Die.
So, only liquid metal a needed.

Which one to choose - Liquid Pro or Thermalright Silver King?

I`m finding comparison between Conductonaut and Silver King.

But i must choose one sure.
Pro - 82.1 W, SK - 79, but needed tested on practice i believe.

I am blown away by kryonaut. I was using arctic mx-4 before and decided to switch to Kryonaut. My system stressed basically runs at least 4-5 degrees cooler. I was very surprised. I applied it following the directions using the spreader instead of the pea method this time and it seems to work.

I found Thermalright TFX to be better then kryonaut. But it is a lot more expensive. So i find myself buying the Kryonaut more often.

Are you sure it's not related to some other factor? I've seen no difference between Kryonaut and MX-4 on my rig, guru3d also had 2C difference, which could be a methodology error as well.
