agreed ...Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut can be a bit pricey. I got a 1g kit just to try it out:

I have always been a fan of Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut or Coollaboratory liquid pro. Basically liquid metal all the way.

Pain in the ass to spread when not used to it , but damn it gives some nice results. I actually just Delidded my 7700k and had a 18C drop in temp. So yeah, go MX4 as being the popular choice, but if you want to spoil yourself. Give liquid metal a go.

Metal TIM is perfectly safe for your GPUs. Just apply an incredibly thin layer and once under compression it will not spread to unwanted areas.

WOW! 18C drop !
That's good stuff !

Also between IHS and cooler? Or just die and IHS?

Agreed on price performance. Like Bonkers, i just bought it to try it out. It's definitely better than arctic silver 5 Haven't tried anything else. I don't change paste that often.

liquid tim is most efficient between Die and IHS, some people use metal on this part and then MX4 between IHS and cooler. For me though I just use it on both. I actually think someone posted that the most efficient test result was this:

Thermal Grizzly conductonaut in between die and ihs
Themal Grizzly Krynaut in between ihs and cooler.

It is possible to go even lower still. For example, EK sold naked Ivy mounts meaning you ditch the IHS altogether. When I did this with my 3570k I dropped temps by a massive 24C. Downside is that devils canyon ran too warm to do this effectively, and EK dont support any later generation CPU passed ivy bridge with their naked mount. So I do not recommend going naked die anymore until they design a safe mount to do so.

There will always be risk involved for those who splash it on too much. If you get overspill once the TIM is under compression and it touches any chips. It will conduct and short circuit your die! You can however slap some of your wives/gf/sisters nail polish (clear) on the chips and that will protect them from contact.

There are more cons than pros for liquid metal but I would still choose it over normal paste

pro:
*best results and highest temp drops
*never need to reapply it

cons:
*cant be used on aluminium
*possibly expensive
*pita to clean off if you decide to switch back to paste
*pita to spread if not used to it

OP be very careful when working around the memory HBM memory chips as they are very easy to damage.

I have used liquid metal before on GPU of 980ti. After 6 months i took it off and checked the surface of the GPU and it after cleaning it was a lot more dull like it was tarnished.
I dont know if it was corrosion though. I havent used it on a GPU since. I use the Noctua nt-h1 now and have just bought some thermal grizzly for mounting water blocks. On CPU's i use Thermal grizzly conductonaut now which is a lot of fun

Its not corrosion. As I said in the post above, its just a pain in the a** to clean. But you can restore it to its natural gleam.

To spill over liquid metal TIM you need to overdo it hard. This stuff has high surface tension (it wants to stay compact) that is why it is so hard to spread. Even if it pushes out on the edges between die and IHS it will stay in the corner like a blob, without spilling down the edges of the die. It really requires insane amount to reach capacitors and stuff around the die.

The other thing to be careful is when you squeeze it out of syringe, because it can eject instantly (that is not what she said ) over all of your motherboard. Best thing is to put some insulating tape around die, and remove it when you finish spreading.


Use as little as possible and enjoy.
