Yes, it's rather cryptic. FWIW, I just took apart my block for cleaning and this is what it looks like after almost 3 years using Hydronaut:

Weight does not equal volume dude, also not everyone uses enormous syringes.

Kryonaut is way over priced and over rated NT-H1 is fine.

toolmaker03 well I learned the hard way that artic silver 5, is not designed to be used in conditions that reach 0C or less. as it will dry out really quickly, and turn into a dust. today I use artic ceramique for all my cold side thermal connection points.

In water cooling, your CPU and GPU will thermal cycle more quickly and you need a thicker paste to avoid pumpout. Kryonaut is NOT designed for water.

poah Found it to be poor performer on my systems. Overpriced and overhyped. Wouldn’t advise anyone to use it over other pastes.
