    Which Thermal Paste Would You Use ?

    Has anyone tried Icy Diamond Thermal Paste..This stuff is thick like Body Filler you would put in a fender ding on a car.Maybe thicker..I have herd good things about the temps though on the web but nothing here.Has no one here ever tried it..I have 2 tubes of thermal paste and debating which to use for now..The Icy Diamond or Mx4..I have ordered the Kryonaut and some KPx HP thermal compound when they come in I will test the two out and see which one wins out and post the results..

    I've always used Arctic Silver, has always worked well for me.
    A lot of people seam to like that Grizzly Kryonaut as well.

    Not here. I changed to Noctua NT-H2 the newest version.. It's amazing and it did drop my temps big time. between 6c and 10c. No lies no BS It also has a new consistency that binds better then the older pastes. I think the new compound is much better at thermal transfer.

    Always comes in with great temps, but is pretty risky if you make a mistake.. it is conductive so anything that gets on the motherboard could be catastrophic. If you are not superclocking it's not worth it in my opinion for 2 to 5 degrees from an already optimized paste.

    I've been using Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut lately on my 9900k and my GTX 1080.. Previously I was using Prolimatech PK-3 and Noctua NT-H2, which are both quite good as well. I've had my best results with the Kryonaut though on my end.
