So I saw this on amazon and the picture in the ad make the jar look big, I thought it would be like the size of a small peanut butter jar for $100 Dollars USD. But a closer look at it and it is just slightly bigger than a quarter.
 
For CPU's and GPU's this is probably OK. I guess if you absolutely wanted to avoid Liquid Metal, this would be overkill since you could just buy regular Kryonaut in the syringe. The truth is that this is supposed to be the KP equivalent for ThermalGrizzly for extreme overclockers on Liquid Nitrogen LN2.
 
That's when the enthusiast in me said "But could I get a 1 or 2 degree delta temperature difference with this on water?" ( compared to the normal Kryonaut paste )
 
Now I have also tried liquid metal on GPU's and CPU's and GPU's it works great as long as it is coated with nail polish over the SMD's.
 
Just recently I started to notice on my X299 Dark that some of the cores were overheating after having liquid metal for 2 years on it. So maybe some of it dried up or got fused with the cold plates, but I am sure that if I clean some of my old liquid metal and put this in that this should have no problem with the contact pressure.
 
So I will be doing a test to see how it does in a custom Watercooling loop.
 
Also, this is proof that high-end thermal paste exists, if you can afford it. It comes with 3 spatulas to spread it evenly.

    33.84grams seems like overkill unless your a system builder. TIM have a shelf life iirc. But I haven't tried using Kryonaut just Hydronaut

    Yeah, lol get the 1g of it and that does 4-6 cpu applications or 8 GPUs.

    I used this on my 10980xe, x299 dark. used the normal kryonaut before. Custom loop, 3 rads, 9 a12x25 fans. Honestly, no difference.

    seems like the real benefit of this stuff would be found from sub ambient cooling. interested in your results though.

    Imagine paying $97 for Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut Extreme, when you could have paid $12.50 for Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut and achieved better results.

    Ok so second test was with the thermal paste on and my idle temps were around 39 C which is on a custom watercooling loop for CPU. Motherboard is EVGA X299 Dark.
     
    ** EDIT - These temps are with 1 game running **
     
    My maximum temp for the entire CPU was 85C and highest core is 90C. Average temperature is 58C and the CPU is a 12 core hitting 5 Ghz on all cores.
     
    Here are the results:
     
    I have to say this really surprised me that the temperatures were this good for a non-liquid metal paste. The computer fans are also running quieter.
     
    I'm putting this on my RTX 3090 as soon as the EVGA Hydro Copper comes out.

    Can't you give us some context? What were your temps before?

    Why is there an imposter?  What are the odds?

    Only thing is with these you have to replace them after a couple years, i keep seeing that, mostly with thermal grizzly that after a year or 2 temps start getting worse and thats why aibs dont use that since they need thermal paste to last for years

    MX-4 lasts longer.  I usually change the TIM every 4 or so years but either way, it should last a while.

    BCavnaugh hasn’t been active lately, but he has been with us for a long long time. If you look through modsrigs, he has quite a few systems in there and he use to be very active with us.

    Random Associate Code >> GDWZE7QOTF << this is NOT my associate code. I do not have an associate code. Feel free to use it to save a few bucks.

    yep, all the tims that actually make a huge difference on temps vs stock need to be replaced more often, i also saw this with ps4s where people complained about stock thermal paste not being that good and then they complain that when they replaced it they needed to replace it multiple times after that after like a year
