Redwoodz Using Phobya's NanoGrease Extreme- 16W/mK very good- spreads thin. CPU will sometimes hit 3c over ambient when idle. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I have used and liked MX-4,GelidGCExtreme, and my old all time fav Shin Etsu X23 7783D https://www.frozencpu.com/products/8..._-_5_Gram.html

VeritronX So far my favourite is ek's ectotherm, It just spreads so easily that it works really well with zero effort. You can place a blob of it and watch as it spreads into a ahallow round pool just from gravity sitting on the IHS. Kryonaught is the hardest high performing paste I've tried to spread by comparison, thicker than gelid gc extreme and mx4.

KedarWolf Liquid metal if you're not careful will ruin your motherboard.

I swear by MasterGel Maker Nano, I find it even performs better than Kryonaut.

JackCY There are some newer pastes but often not so easy to get. Thermalright thread on OCN. Some are cheap, some not so much.
If it's a watery/thin paste... I would avoid as that is more of a bencher/short term paste.
I only have the old stock TR paste CH3 or something, and going with Gelid GC Ex while better, as said those differences in good pastes are small in performance.

Grizzly tends to be expensive and there are some things to watch out for with their pastes. How long they last with good performance, what are they for, etc. They can be good but maybe not for your use case.

if you wanna get really hard core, look up solder pad + chip type. That giant chip would be a great candidate for reflowing a solder pad, and it is BY FAR the most effective solution on the market.

I'm still using MX4 for everything i don't CLU, but that's because the giant tube I got has last me about 7 years.

For a change Ill go Kyronaut

BroadPwns I've freshly bought MX-4 because of the lottery, else would have go for Kryonaut. I'm one of these guys that care about every temperature degrees on the CPU . And because of the lottery... which isn't available to the "Rest of the world" :v
