About this deal

We'll go into our breakdown of how we test these thermal pastes below, but the key takeaway here is that a single thermal compound can perform differently based upon several variables, such as what type of cooler and mount you use. To cover all the bases, we've tested every thermal paste with three variables: Conductonaut is a eutectic alloy – it is a mix of gallium, indium, and tin. This is Galinstan, but the individual mixtures of liquid metal have different percentages for each element. We don’t know the exact mixture of Conductonaut, but we do know that it uses gallium, indium, and tin. Most liquid metals use this mixture, just with varying percentages of each element. Gallium typically comprises the majority of the mixture.

Absolutely, high-quality thermal paste can ensure effective heat dissipation from a processor towards your CPU cooler. Yes, you can use any paste you like but they’re not all created equal. Ultimately, ensuring effective cooling will help ensure longevity at the heart of your PC. And so paying a bit more for recommended, proven and the best thermal paste makes sense. Is it OK to put a lot of thermal paste? The info relating to curing time (despite the manufacturers claim) is also a great bonus to have confirmed in tests (especially as I already suspected it)...again, proper test confirmed my suspicionA heat-conducting medium in the form of liquid metal does not have this problem because it does not contain any "large" particles. As a result, the surfaces of the CPU cooler and heat spreader are closer together. At the same time, liquid metal has a constant heat transfer, while the larger solid particles in pastes usually conduct heat better than the paste parts. Liquid metal is preferable to thermal paste, especially in high energy applications. In this temperature range you can apply Conductonaut Extreme to the surface. If this temperature was undershot during transportation or storage we recommend to heat up the product to at least 25 °C before application. Do NOT use a microwave to heat up the product.

To be honest; I was actually disappointed with the results when I first installed the Conductonaut LM (after viewing all the hype about it and learning about the risk) people often associate more risk with much better gains. A recent government study of a paste rated by manufacturer (can't remember what one) also showed the w/MK rating as 8 times as weak as claimed. (you'd have to google it for the full story). Applying liquid metal between the IHS and the die will result in a look more like the above. It’s slightly stained, but the staining is largely removable. You can slowly remove more and more of the stained surface, but ultimately, some of it will permanently remain. Acetone and rubbing alcohol can do a lot to clean off an IHS stained with liquid metal. If you’re wondering this does have a very tangible effect. While it might not keep your CPU 7 times cooler, it does lower the temperature by as much as 10 degrees Celsius more than the rest of the pastes on the list. If that doesn’t make it the best GPU thermal paste, then I don’t know what would.Not all pastes are the same, depending on the type of paste you buy the application process can be difficult. This can lead to less efficient cooling and you damaging components within your computer. Liquid metal pastes are harder to apply than others and just one drop can cause a lot of problems. Is high-quality thermal paste worth it? Most pastes are made of ceramic or metallic materials suspended within a proprietary binder, allowing for easy application and spread and simple cleanup.Depending on their specific formula, these thermal pastes can be electrically conductive or non-conductive.Electrically conductive thermal pastes can carry electricity between two points, meaning that if the paste squeezes out onto other components, it can cause damage to motherboards and CPUs when you switch on the power. A single drop out of place can lead to a dead PC, so extra care is imperative. The Kryonaut temps above have been updated accordingly to show the results after 48hrs of Kryonaut installation. Each test stage (with time) can also be viewed above in detail! We tested each thermal paste with a low-tension air cooler mount, high-tension air cooler mount, and a high-tension AIO liquid cooler mount. Each application was given a 1-hour burn-in using Prime95 with ten load and cooling cycles over the course of the hour; six minutes each with a ten-second cool-down between. Each testing load session was then executed for a one-hour load period, again using Prime95.
