  1. I`ve always used Arctic Silver because that`s the only brand I knew until today.Arctic Silver was just popular, affordable, and always seemed better than the stock paste that the manufacturer of the cooling device packaged w/their products. Then after watching dozens of video reviews and reading posts w/benchmarks I decided to try a brand that with a bit more expensive but had great reviews.So in comparison, I think Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut is working as the majority has reviewed positively for it. I noticed my temps on my CPU & now water cooled GPU drop a few degrees C and when you`re trying to push your tech to its limits, if I can shave off 2-3 degrees C here and there by spending a little bit more on premium products it all adds up for the better.This particular item is likely good for 3-4 applications, I`ve used it for 2 so far and I know I can squeeze another pea sized bead for sure, maybe even 2. I didn`t use the plastic applicator since that`s just not how I spread the paste.Packaging: thermal paste, plastic applicator, and instructions are packaged in a small foil and air tight sealed bag. Think drink pouch but smaller.5 stars. The paste is working as expected Yes, I`d recommend this to a friend and buy it again.Pro: Seems to be performing better than stock paste & previously applied Arctic Silver. (wish it came with a logo sticker)Con: it does cost a few dollars more than the ever popular Arctic Silver brand.

  2. Easily spreadExcellent thermal performance (right there with Gelid GC Extreme and Prolimatek PK-3) with one REALLY important difference**Easy to clean upThe only con is price, but you do get what you pay for. That said, you won`t need to keep around two or more kinds of pastes. See more below about why that is…** Different thermal pastes are often better at either higher pressure or lower pressure mounting environments (water vs. air cooler for example) where clamping forces demonstrate how different pastes behave. This paste (Kryonaut) is best at BOTH which is unusual. This makes it very convenient since I only utilize Kryonaut nowadays regardless of clamping pressure.

  3. What is with this huge thermal conductivity? It`s eerie. Apparently the highest for any non-liquid-metal TIM. I can believe it too with the temperature drops I`m getting.Got conductonaut between the die and IHS, and this stuff between the IHS and heat sink. Lost like 25-30 degrees. Granted I was using a really low-profile cooler in a very small mini ITX case, so it wasn`t great to begin with. But still. Intel has obviously messed up with this de-lidding business. You should never be able to get a whole 30 degrees celsius off a chip with just a fan. That`s like liquid nitrogen territory. Intel broke it, and thermal grizzly fixed it!I went ahead and put the rest of the kryonaut on the GPU, some LCD controllers I had lying around that got hot, my raspberry pi…

  4. I used Artic Silver and its successors from 2000 until I switched out to Arctic MX-4 for daily use . I made that switch because AS5 couldn`t handle the GTX580s. After the stock TIM failed on my 4 580s in 2 years of usage I repasted with AS5 and within weeks my temps would creep up again. So I researched, gave MX-4 the nod and all was good until my Alienware 17r4 with a GTX1080 and the intel i7-7820HK, Due in no small part to the iffy and well documented tension system the stock thermal compound just wasn`t sufficient, let alone acceptable out of the box. SO I used a fresh tube of the MX-4 and about a year after, I started seeing microstuttering, sidebanding lag, and thermal problems in general worsen from initial onset over a month. That Kyronaut had had some time on the market since I bought this laptop I decided to order it up and utry it out. The temps I am seeing are easily superior to MX-4 new and settled in. Provided this stuff holds up over time it will be my defacto paste. The performance is great and the applicability is not particularly problematic. Good for any one with gumption and hands to build their own or willing to repaste a laptop/PS/GPU.

  5. I just spent the last hour detailing and cleaning my GPU. (EVGA Geforce GTX 970 FTW Edition)Took it totally apart and scrubbed cleaned everything w/ 91% rubbing alcohol, air duster and a new paint brush (additional dusting) for the finishing touches. Did all the back and mid plates, heatsink, mainboard, fans, cleaned off the old thermal compound and reapplied some of this new Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut compound.Pre cleaning temps:22 degrees Celsius ambient room temperature50 degrees Celsius at idle91 degrees Celsius at load (100% fan)The GPU was getting so hot, I lost almost 200mhz on my boost clock, since I was hitting the thermal limits and underclocking itself.Post cleaning/detailing Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut: (finger spread method spatula to smooth it out)22 degrees Celsius ambient room temperature33 degrees Celsius at idle59 degrees Celsius at load (60% fan)Plus I`ve gained my boost clock back and I can now overclock this thing once again.Runs cooler than when I had it brand new out of the box straight from the factory. (If I remember correctly, it was running around 70-75 degrees Celsius at load brand new)Suffice to say, I was not expecting the results to be this positive. Granted it was filthy, full of dust bunnies and the factory thermal compound was toast.The only slight negative I could maybe say about this stuff, is it`s slightly harder to work with. Definitely a bit thicker and harder to spread vs stuff like Artic Silver or IC Diamond. But still only took me a minute or two to apply it.All in all, couldn`t be happier!:edit:As others have mentioned in the comments, a lot of my temps drops were likely due to the cleaning, which is fair. Sadly I didn`t do a controlled experiment with just cleaning to know for sure. But I will say the stock thermal paste on this thing was cracker dry and toast. But to what degree either had on the end result I can`t say for sure.
