Which thermal grizzly paste for cpu, gpu?
tried Kryonaut and was 4-5c worse than the other pastes I have (cryorig CP7, arctic silver 5, noctua)
What TIM is best at heat transfer is not the same as what TIM will give us a good seat without any problems .. and getting a good TIM seat is more important than the heat transfer ability of a specific TIM. A poor seat can result in temps 5-10c higher than they should be .. and the top 50 TIMs (except liquid metal) are all within about 3c of each other in heat transfer ability.
Cryorig CP7, Thermalright TF6 or TF8, Noctua NT-H1, Gelid GC Extreme, Prolimatech, be quiet! DC1, or any other top tier company TIM does the job just fine.
If you want to worry about a few degrees difference, worry about the air temp going into your cooler, because many (most) builds have air 5-15c warmer than room going into their coolers after a few minutes of gaming or similar high load application.
Thanks for the advice!
Kryonaut IMO, i use it on my CPU and GPU. It doesn't conducted electricity so is perfect for GPU's as well as CPU's. Don't scrimp when applying, Gamers Nexus did a test which is worth watching on youtube
Try tightening the screws up a bit more on your CPU, as the thermal paste settles down after a few days.
