It's pretty easy, honestly it's just removing the 4 pin fan power connector and removing screws. When you have a few hours, go ahead and lookup a dissasembly guide on YouTube or Ifixit on your card and go from there.

After disasemmbly, there'll be a bunch of old thermal paste, simply going at it with q-tips and coffee filters will remove it. If it's not really coming off, use a small amount of isopropyl alcholol above 60% and get removing.

Kryonaut works really well for paste on tight GPU mounting, but any real thermal compounds works that you have lying around.

Reassembly is simply putting in new paste, attaching the 4 pins back and re screwing. A side note, you don't have to take the fans off of the heating block (aluminum fins), but rather just the cooling element off the card.

Good luck!

Yep. I blew out all the dust and replaced the thermal paste with this:

Put more on than you think you need as the cooler contact isn’t super tight and it’s none conducive so it’s just fine if it comes out on the sides.

I used compressed air to clean the heat sink and fan. Rubbing alcohol to clean the old thermal paste. Be careful cleaning around the resistors around the apu. They are somewhat delicate. You can really just leave them as they are. GamersNexus never cleans them because it’s pointless and risks damaging them.

I think it’s quieter than when it was new. I can barely hear it when gaming on a X enhanced game.

Is Grizzly Kryonaut the best thermal paste one could apply on the Thinkpads?

u/Cucumference · 4 pointsr/lgv20

So, after using this phone for about 2 years now, it is starting to feel a little sluggish. I have been browsing this place for a while and figure I will try this out just for kick.

Keep in mind, this phone has already been repasted using Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut Thermal Paste. A very generous dosage too. Just to make sure it met, but really it wasn't a huge improvement over stock. Just a little better.

After about a year of this, while it didn't really degrade in performance, it wasn't all that satisfying, to begin with. So I decided to order
Just to try it out. Everyone else seems to be using Thermal Grizzly 0.5mm pad, but I decided to do this mostly cause it is cheaper and has 4 total applications that I can still share after a bit.

And result comparison is here, really, not too bad at all!

The device is noticeably snappier and faster. Really don't notice the occasional sluggishness from before. I am very happy with this!

If you have a cheap way of getting this pad I still recommend it. I haven't compared it with thermal grizzly directly on the same phone but I can't imagine it to be much worse. Keep in mind Digi-key charge quite a bit of shipping. So unless you have shipping arrangement that is cheap. You should look for something like this elsewhere.

u/xJGVx · 3 pointsr/Dell

Apex on battery.

I have all Dell and Intel software enabled and up to date except for Dell Support Assist(unistalled because it was re-installing SmartByte), SmartByte, Killer Network and Rivet services are all stopped and disabled.

CPU/GPU was re-pasted with this.

Current CPU UV, your mileage may vary.

GPU OC/UV @0.700mV, 2nd lowest performance state.

GPU OC/UV Highest Performance State @0.813mV, it says @1733mhz but in reality GPU sits @1721mhz, this will greatly reduce GPU temps and since the heatsink is shared that includes the CPU as well.

Extra Sauce when playing plugged. Helps with random shutdowns and BSODs.

At all times even on battery, my own preference.

This is all on the latest BIOS, i've always updated it.

My max CPU temps hover between low 80c to mid 70's depending on game while the CPU sits @3.9GHz and GPU barely hits 72c at a room temp of ~34c. Tropical humid weather may simulate yours since you are indian?(wild guess sorry if your not and it's offensive D:).

Bonus round:

My laptop came with the AUO panel and it's OC'ed to 108hz LCD Reduced.

I barely use the Realtek's sound drivers, mainly use a wireless headset and bluetooth for speakers, to cope with the DPC latency issues.

Download HWInfo64 and keep an eye on the m.2 ssd and the PCH temp. Those can alter performance plugged or unplugged.

m.2 ssd heatsink link if needed.

This is not necessary but i had to do this, Dell's fault. MAY VOID WARRANTY.

If i can help with anything else, lemme know.


Edit: some fixes and clarity.

u/proto_hyped · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

These are just a few I'd recommend, but definitely do your research and see which one is best for your needs.

Thermal Grizzly Kyronaut

IC Diamond 7 Carat

Coollaboratory Liquid Pro

u/tamarockstar · 3 pointsr/overclocking

That's probably the best non-electrically conductive thermal paste. Like I said though, you'll only see a couple degrees difference. Delidding would drop it 10-20C degrees though.

u/Havok7x · 3 pointsr/Amd

a tube of kryonaut is only ~$12 on amazon. Its worth it for such a low cost. I did it and my delta dropped by 5-10C. Kryonaut is one of the top pastes. AC is outdated similar to how people still get the Evo 212.

u/Niarus · 2 pointsr/Alienware

Here is detailed guide how to repaste it:

If you're not confident and don't want to use thermal paste with electrical conductivity, then use Grizzly Kryonaut ( instead of Conductonaut.

But first I recommend to run any 3D benchmark for 30+ minutes (3Dmark FireStrike, Heaven, Valley etc.) to find out if you don't have any stuttering, before doing the repaste. Because if you do have stuttering, then you probably will need to replace your motherboard..

u/Ropya · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Might want to up your PSU if you are thinking going VR.

Im not sure how much juice a VR rig pulls, put youre already around 60% PSU cap.

Also, this is the best non metallic TC ive seen on a couple studies:

Same price.

Oh, and of the Tis, I like the Gigabyte one the best mainly because of the I/Os.

u/Mourloz · 2 pointsr/Dell

Good evening bud,

I had the same issues last week. 3D Mark Time Spy would never finish. The computer would restart every time on test number 2. I used hwinfo64 to monitor the temperatures which were close to 100C.

Bought, repasted, and issue was fixed. Max temperature now is 86C.

Give it a try. You won't void your warranty, unless you damage a part. If you can't do it on your own, call the tech support and ask a technician to do it. Be sure to supply them with your own thermal compound and not let them apply a ton of it.

u/F41LUR3 · 2 pointsr/wow

Cheap option, get this (might be a tight squeeze, requires removing the side panel fan):

Best option, get this (also requires removing that side panel fan, but might be a tiny bit easier to fit in as it's 2mm shorter):

unless you don't want to remove the side-panel fan at all, then get this, still great cooling:

It would also be helpful to know your motherboard model to check the compatibility list. But I'm fairly certain these coolers should fit regardless.

They include decent thermal paste, but the FX8350 is one of the hotter chips and it might be worthwhile to squeeze a few extra degrees out with this paste:

u/boredherobrine13 · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Info about water cooling? AiO loop or custom? If AiO, any idea which one? Brand? etc. Additionally, you may want to consider a better thermal paste like Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut.

u/Crypto-Hero · 2 pointsr/Dell
  1. Remove all Killers wifi drivers & then install the latest Intel wifi driver. Very easy, 3 minutes top.
  2. Get the Grizzy thermal paste, open the back of the laptop, clean & repaste the CPU thermal.
  3. Install ThrottleStop, undervolt to the max amount on all. Guide here.
  4. Install Dell Updates app. This will scan your laptop and update any drivers all at once.
  5. Run Windows update utility. Start button, then select Settings \> Update & Security  > Windows Update.
  6. Sleep issue. This is not cause by Dell but Microsoft as a whole for Windows 10. Google the keyword: "connected standby" for more info. Basically when you close the laptop for it to sleep, it keeps background connection active to get updates for Windows, causing battery drain and sometimes, keeping the computer on even when the lid is closed. Work around: 1) Registry fix. 2) Change from Sleep to Hibernate in the Power setting. This is much better and has 0 drain at all. Lots of people do this on here.
  7. Enjoy it!
u/Search11 · 2 pointsr/intel

Valid concerns but trust me it’s a breeze to do. Given how hot your CPU gets you will benefit from a proper delid. Granted though you are still within safe temps. The temps are highish but they aren’t abnormal compared to most others. Higher temps do lessen the life of the CPU but we are talking a very small time span compared to the market life of the chip. I’d say you and 99% of all PC builders will have build a second or even third computer before silicone degradation even reaches minimal levels. If that makes sense. Yeah high temps kill it but it’s like saying the three cigarettes you smoked in high school took two minutes off your life when you live to be a hundred anyway. Analogy might be to the extreme but I wouldn’t worry about it.

With that said here’s some links that will help you.

Delid tool and re attachment tool:

Plastic razor blades to remove stock glue (what you mentioned not knowing what to do with, yes remove it the easiest way I’ve done it was using these and a small amount of isopropyl alcohol):

Silicone “glue” for IHS re attachment. To be honest the very first delid I did was a 3570k using wood a vice and a hammer and I didn’t reglue it. It’s still alive too. I would personally just use a very small amount on the four corners. Just enough to stick. You are correct in your concern about the stock glue causing the IHS to not make perfect contact with the die. Remove the stock crap and use minimal amount of this and it will be a non concern:

Lastly, your liquid metal for the die to IHS and your TIM for the IHS to Kraken. You can use any but it’s probably safe to say Grizzly is currently the go to stuff:

All in all it’s easy and it’s worth it. If you have any questions whatsoever message me or reply here. There are some good videos of walkthroughs (I think one really good one is on rockitcool’s website but I’m not sure). I can find them for you but tomorrow as I’m currently in bed and using a half open eye lid to write this.

u/sev968 · 2 pointsr/Alienware

I can't speak for you but for me I have less throttling and better performance on the 7700! If I can I recommend this, it's $11 :D

u/aberugg · 2 pointsr/sysadmin

An excessive amount is really really bad. You can see reductions in temps by up to 20° C or more by switching to something like Kyronaut. But I doubt Kryonaut will be as stable for 5-7 years in preventing hot spots, the way their lower performing but higher durability pastes would. Also, who would apply thermal paste to PC's in their environment lol

u/yeggmann · 2 pointsr/buildapc

You don't need arctic silver 5, your CPU cooler should include some paste and it will be just as good as AS5. If you want to buy a premium paste, people are buying this to save a couple degrees on their temps. Its up to you if its worth the extra money for a couple degrees.

u/TreeNuts0 · 2 pointsr/buildmeapc

I use:

With this thermal paste:

The heatsink is large but it's super quiet. That whole family of heatsinks has good reviews.

u/RayCharlizard · 2 pointsr/PS4

Any would work, but I recommend Kryonaut Thermal Grizzly.

u/BeastKingGod · 2 pointsr/Alienware

Here is a great forum on disassembly and repasting. Do what you feel most comfortable with.

This is the video I personally used for repasting, he uses Liquid Metal. I DID NOT

This is the method I chose to go with using above video.
I used IC Graphite Thermal Pads along with copper shims in a stacked formation. !!!Side note!!! I did use the slightest of thermal paste to stop the graphite pad from sliding around on the CPU/GPU. Like a smudge of a smudge. Then I under volted CPU by 110. I personally have not had a heating issue since, but this all just a suggestion.

This is what I used

Copper shim

This is what most people suggest**

Hope some of this helps

u/YaCantStopMe · 2 pointsr/Alienware

Grab some grizzly kryonaut:

But in the meantime you should download Intel XTU and undervolt your CPU. Theres a few videos online on how to do it and it will drop your temps. a -.100 undervolt is a good place to start.

u/Marcos340 · 2 pointsr/overclocking

It is only one gram of thermal paste but I doubt you’ll need more to reapply, luckily they’re cheap

u/DZCreeper · 2 pointsr/buildapc

> 750 GOLD TX750m

Not worth the money. Go with the Corsair RMx 650 or Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 650. Don't pay more than $90 for either. Your PSU honestly isn't the weak link though. Your GPU will only pull about 300 watts fully overclocked, and your CPU around 200. 50 watts for the rest of the system is a bit tight but doable, especially because very rarely will both the CPU and GPU see full load at the same time.

Delid your CPU, get a replacement copper IHS, use liquid metal under the IHS, and kryonaut on top of it.

Total cost will be about $80 for everything you need but it will drop 20 degrees or more off your load temperatures.

u/Parnax · 2 pointsr/buildapcforme

The NVidia reference card for the 2070 Super has a good cooler and runs cool and quiet.

The Noctua LH-L12 you found is the right one. This cooler has been discontinued by Noctua and is out of stock worldwide. There was one in stock at a few days ago but now it's gone. If you did get one, you'd remove the top fan and mount a A12x15 fan in the case fan slot directly above it. Alternatively, you'd attach the A12x15 fan directly to the top of the cooler in place of the stock top fan. However, I'm not sure that the clips that came with the cooler would work on the slimmer fan.

It is strongly recommended to add a Noctua fan with size depending on the cooler used. It is OK to reuse the stock case fans to cool the graphics card. You could remove the case fan which comes installed over the motherboard and move it to the open case fan slot over the graphics card next to the fan already installed there.

The NVMe SSD selected uses MLC NAND and has 600 TBW endurance. MLC is superior to either QLC or TLC.

The power supply calculator shows that this build needs 414W of power, so 600W should be sufficient.

Please don't use liquid metal as thermal paste in a PC like this one you will be moving a lot. It stays liquid and conducts electricity. It could create a short and destroy electrical components if it leaks out. The Noctua cooler comes with good thermal paste. Kryonaut Thermal Grizzly is another good option. When applying thermal paste on the 3900X don't use the pea or X method. Be sure that the paste is evenly spread across the entire top of the chip. There are three chiplets in the 3900X and none of them are in the center.

The motherboard comes with a WiFi antenna. I'd use it to start and consider upgrading if needed.

With the change in currency, VAT and your discount I couldn't be sure that I got the budget right. Is it OK?

I'm glad to help. Let me know if you have any other questions.

u/JonSAlberta · 2 pointsr/GPDPocket

I would not adjust your Bios settings without giving the CPU better cooling.

I used Grizzly Kryonaut Thermal Grease Paste.


Fujipoly smart Extreme X-e Thermal Pad 11.0 W/mK I put 2 layers of 1mm thermal pads on the heat pipe from above the CPU to halfway to the fan.

For the thermal pads I followed the general idea in this

My pads are close to this pattern:
I used larger pads directly over the CPU. The pad over the Fan discharge is intended to stop air from leaking around the copper cooling fins but the joint already had tight tolerances in my laptop so I used those pads around the CPU instead.

I followed the instructions on this post to adjust the bios:

Although I set my temp limits at 80C instead of 85C. Not that it matters with the cooling I have I can't get the CPU above 70C even running the Prime 95 stress tests for 30 minutes.

I hope this helps. You don't need the exact brand of paste or pads I used, I just included them in case anyone was curious.

I also tried 2 other kids of pads but they don't stick to a surface so I did not like using them. (Phobya Thermal Pad XT 7W/mk and Fujipoly 17.0 W/mK pad)

I should give credit; the thermal pad post was by ZiggyDeath and the BIOS settings were by neoak.

I am please with the way my system has worked out. I hope you are pleased with yours.

Have a good one.


u/rebelx · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Looks like TG Kryonaut is about $10 on Amazon, but they're all beingsold by random sellers and not TG or Amazon, or some other major retailer. Not sure if legitimate? Newegg only has the 11 gram Kryonaut, and I don't need that much. Bit perplexed on what to do!

EDIT: Newegg apparently has the 1.0 gram too! But it's sold by random people, as well. Just confirmed from TG's site that "MemoryC" is an authorized seller, so I'll probably buy from them on Newegg, even though it costs a few dollars more. Should guarantee the legitimate product!

u/AGentlemanWalrus · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

ALRIGHT! Sorry for just getting back to you I've been trying to reply and mobile and kept accidentally deleting what i typed while trying to format my response. So had to move to the Laptop.

Anyways when I say you should repaste I'm referring to the action of removing the heatsink from the CPU and GPU clearing the provided "thermal paste/grease" (thermal paste or grease depending to who you talk to is a thermally conductive paste that is meant to be between the CPU/GPU and the heatsink to fill the airgap and conduct heat to the sink better.) from both and applying new paste. Here is also a video guide on how to apply thermal paste it doesn't pertain specifically to your laptop but gives you a good idea on how its done.

Now when it comes to your device I took the liberty of looking up the service manual and found a video guide on how to disassemble down the the motherboard here. If you've never done anything like this before it can be a little daunting, but if you have a friend with some experience it shouldn't be more than a few hours project and the outcome should be considerably better than before.

If you are going to go this route there are a few thermal pastes that everyone recommends and everyone has their own opinions but as I stated before any of these will be better than what you originally had so buy whatever fits your budget.

Artic Silver 5


Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut

Prolimatech PK-3

There are plenty of others but any of these will do you good, with a major recommendation to the Silver 5 due to bang for the buck.

After all that and you decide that maybe you don't want to do a repaste (and even if you did repaste I'm still recommending this) you are going to want to get a laptop cooling pad. The reason is due to the nature of laptops and how compact they are sometimes depending on the surface they are laid on they do not get enough air to cool properly, dropping your performance into the shitter. I have a similarly spec'd laptop to yours (Lenovo Y50 4700hq and 860m) and I use the Notepal XSlim its not the best but it does the job and for $18 I can't complain. There are others but buy what feels right to you.

Sorry for the long winded post I hope this helps you some, and I hope you can get your laptop performance back as you have a more than capable laptop. Let me know if you need anything else!

u/Poppy_Tears · 1 pointr/buildapc

Use this one it's currently the best:

u/AttyMAL · 1 pointr/PS4Pro

Here's what I bought. I just did mine and it's almost mouse fart quiet now.

I used this video to disassemble and these photos to know where to apply the paste/grease and pads. Note that in the picture gallery, that guys is using liquid metal. The product above is not liquid metal, so you don't have to use the nail polish protection.

u/ryanvsrobots · 1 pointr/sffpc

Thanks for the reply - I actually didn't know about liquid metal/aluminum reaction! Luckily I don't think this contains gallium, but I'll have to do some research to make sure. Thanks for the heads up, you possibly saved my heatsink!

u/olmecmx · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

Good nigh all! so got my Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut , i just re-pasted my laptop and the thermals are great with out limiting Turbo Boost, see below. Like i said before, im not pro at this but this temps came from FFXIV Shadowbringers Benchmark Running at Max Settings. I hope this helps anyone. ( It did not let me paste the Images so see below:

New Temps After Repaste Turbo Off

u/KMQFMSAH · 1 pointr/originalxbox

What i did was use a molex splitter with fan adapter and placed a 120mm fan on top of the hestsinks of the cpu/gpu so it ran full speed. You can get it to balance nicely so it wont drop and smack off the heatsink since they are different sizes. I unplugged and removed the dvd drive and had the hdd off to one side (as far as the power and ide cable would allow.

I then transferred around 500GBs in one go via ftp. Note that I also reapplied new thermal paste on both heatsinks after getting the stock gunk off. No problems at all and i highly reccomend doing it this way, just leave the room as the noise can be irratating, and it takes an age to transfer. Just make sure the xbox is in the open - i cracked my window and sat the xbox as close as i could to allow fresh cool air to aid cooling.

u/Gregadethhh · 1 pointr/buildapc
u/relevant_pet_bug · 1 pointr/buildapc

Sure, that's fine, you can always add extra cooling later.

Just be careful when removing the AM4 stock cooler, make sure to run a CPU stress test and remove it by twisting. The stock cooler can sometimes pull the CPU out of the socket and bend pins. Consider removing the stock paste with 99 percent alcohol and using a non curing thermal past like Kyronaut

u/willster191 · 1 pointr/buildapc

You should probably invest in some real thermal paste. This is good. In fact, it's the best thermal paste around. You can buy isopropyl alcohol at your local grocery store cheap. It's a liquid solution that will not damage your CPU when you use it to remove the thermal paste.

u/GWT430 · 1 pointr/thinkpad

Yes I have! I did that when I swapped out an I5-3230m for an I7-3540m.

This is a good quality video is for the T420.

It's a pretty similar model. The disassembly is the hard part, you've got to take the palm rest and keyboard off. Be gentle with them, there is a ribbon cable connecting them, and if you rip it you are screwed. Both of the ribbon connections just pop off, with a quick pull right on the connector.

I suggest Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut for your paste. If you are going through the trouble of taking your laptop apart, you might as well get the best stuff available. It seems like this is always at the top of the heap for the non-conductive thermal pastes, and if you are only buying one tube, then the price difference is ~5$, which is pretty insignificant in my opinion.

I upgraded to the fastest dual core in this generation and noticed a slight difference. If you are going to spend the money to upgrade the processor, just go get yourself one of the hotter quad cores to make it worth your time. Of course if you do this, pick up the dGPU heat sink and fan, as they are rated for 45W as opposed to 35w. With that heat sink I've seen people get 80c on the hottest quad cores in the generation.

u/bobdole776 · 1 pointr/overclocking

You could always take the card apart and replace the TIM with this. It's the best non-metal thermal compound on the market ATM, and could drop your temps by as much as 10 degrees.

The cooler you keep your card the longer it will last. The 2 770's I upgraded from never went above 58 degrees and are still going strong to this day in my cousins computer, and they were bought in 2013, despite having a massive OC on both of them. Keep your cards cool and they'll last for such a long ass time. With the temps I get on this 1080ti, it should easily last 10 years...

u/Ergo7 · 1 pointr/Alienware

Here's the link for Kryonaut:

Just tell the technician you have your own thermal paste you'd like to use. If he says he can't do it, then call tech support and have them approve it. I was told any technician can use thermal paste supplied by the enduser.

u/Buffalox · 1 pointr/Amd

It's $12 on Amazon for 1 g: link

It's obviously good, but HY880 is just £10 for 30g. Which is great if you experiment or switch parts around when you upgrade. You can buy one tube and have enough for a long time. Or you can get 3g for just £2 link

Other than that there are other factors than thermal conductivity, like thermal contact and longevity.

I agree that $7 is mostly irrelevant when building a computer, but personally thermal grease is something I always have lying around for miscellaneous uses.

u/randomlaptoptree · 1 pointr/techsupport

Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut Thermal Grease Paste - 1.0 Gram

u/JASTechnologies · 1 pointr/overclocking

I learned to OC in the late 90' ( OK, not coiled foul). In early 2000's I started using thermal diodes on CPU, RAM and GPU. This will help you see the temps and either increase heatsink and fans or reduce your OC. A good thermal paste like Thermal Grizzly, Noctua NT-H2 or Artic MX-4. Which one you should use depends on surface. Some will damage aluminium, some have enough metal particals that can short your circuits if slopped over.

I Hope this helps you.

u/Neur0nauT · 1 pointr/RDR2

To be honest, I stopped using Afterburner. I was noticing weird power and heating issues. Now I just use the Adrenalin in-game menu (Alt-R) to change Wattman settings and other things if I want to. And the in-game overlay to monitor temp and FPS (Ctrl+Shift+O) Generally I haven't even been overclocking anything. Just using Chill. IT makes a "boopy-beep" noise when it is enabled. If you use Chill...make sure to disable vsync. I had the same issue as you with certain games when using Afterburner and messing about with some overclocking and power tweaks, so it might be worth uninstalling it, and doing a full clean of your AMD drivers with DDU then get the latest version. I've lerned that Afterburner doesn;t really work well alongside Wattman on the Adrenalin drivers.

DDU download on Guru3d

Make sure you are using Vulkan as the API in game, and try lowering the resolution scale to 90% also. This will look blurry, but it might tell you if your GPU is just being pushed too much to handle things.

I also use a program called AIDA 64 which has a desktop gadget which gives me on screen display of all my temps, fan speeds, CPU/GPU speed, memory use etc. This can be displayed on my second screen. The AMD overlay works just as well for the GPU at least. Note: the FPS counter only seems to display when in fullscreen mode.

So in summary.... try getting rid of Afterburner and reinstall your AMD drivers. Keep Ambient Occlusion off. Consider re-pasting your GPU. Its probably out of warranty by now anyway and it really helps.

Is 1 gram enough? this

u/kiwiandapple · 1 pointr/buildapcforme

Sorry for the late reply, got a bit busy last night and worked on this for a few hours.

I will explain my changes in detail in a reply to this post. Since I went over the 10.000 character limit reddit provides per post.

So I tried to get the black & orange vibe as best as possible, without overdoing it.
I've included custom cables, the price is a slight estimate. To get the best possible looks on them, I would recommend to go the extra mile and measure the cables their length and adjust accordingly. This will make your build pop the extra mile and just look super crisp. More details down below!

I'll also provide my standard list of videos that explain certain hardware terminologies & guides. As well as stress test software!

Yeah definitely try those two first. Worst thing that will come from undervolting will be a unstable system and a BSOD. Then just give up the voltage a little bit till your stable. If your careful look into repasting it with something like thermal grizzlys kryonaut. Worst case that can happen is you put too much on or bend the heatpipes. Maybe lookup some tests and benchmarks to see if people actually gained a significant difference in Temps to make it worth it. If your careful it's not too risky.

Just inserted the AIO with new thermal paste ( ) and im still experiencing high temps. Will try to now reapply my old air cooler. Hopefully this does something.

u/shakabuee23 · 1 pointr/buildapc

If it's only been 1 year since you've used this cooler, then I don't think that thermal paste is your issue, unless it's really bad stock thermal paste.

Get this and pray to God that it's the reason behind your super high temps:

u/Dickelton · 1 pointr/Warframe

try dusting first this is the cheapest/easiest solution. If the problem persists then replace the paste (tons of guides online but I would recommend getting a parts tray or something before doing this as there are going to be quite a few screws).

High performance:

Best value:

Both options are non-conductive so you don't have to worry about it causing a short. If you stumble upon something known as liquid metal (popular for enthusiasts) I would not recommend it considering that stuff is mostly gallium and can cause a short.

u/futilehavok · 1 pointr/buildapc

Nothing particularly wrong with it besides SLI issues you would encounter. Although I would spend thermal paste money on some Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut, you are getting less but its the best thermal paste on the market.

u/Freezerburn · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Dang that's pretty hot, you need to take both your heatsink and gpu out of the system and see if you have caked in dust or if the fan stopped running. If you have a stock cooler on the cpu you'll need to disconnect the fan from the heatsink and pick out the caked up dust. While you have the heatsink out of your system, be sure to get some good thermal paste

Actually a photo of the inside of your case could be helpful. With angles of all fans inside the case.

Hmm.Correct me if I am wrong but the PCB for the armor cards are the same as the gaming X PCB from what I heard. The only diffrence is the cooler which is cheap on the armor cards therfor thats why your getting worst thermal. I am not sure about putting thermal pads on the vrm but I heard that it may or should have decrease the temps buy 3-5C at best. Some GPU manufacture dont put thermal pads over the VRM and the temps are indeed affected. But what I would reccomend you to do is to replace the thermal paste with Artic MX-4 or Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut,that should help reduce the temps by 2-4C. But you can still try no one getting high quality thermal pads over the vrm no one is stopping you. I hope you can share with me the results!

Sweet! Thanks!

u/acewingman · 1 pointr/buildapc

This is by far the best you can get... and even though the coolers come with thermal paste installed it doesn't hurt to have some on hand in case you need it. Since you are using the stock cooler you shouldn't have to remove it after pre-testing before installing like you would if you were installing a large AIO unit.

u/NoMoreRedditUsername · 1 pointr/buildapc

Buy a 1 gram tube of Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut. It's the best thermal paste there is, and you'll have cooler temps than with the stock paste AMD puts on. Just get some alcohol and wipe that crap off lol /s.

It's not really the end of the world to use stock paste though. There's usually a square of grey stuff on the bottom of the heatsink, which would be the thermal "solution". Thermal paste (solution) is just used for filling in the minuscule cracks between the heatsink and the shield on the CPU to help transfer heat. If you do ever clean it off and apply your own, just be sure to use a pea sized (or less) amount. You don't need as much as you'd think.

> Kryonaut

is 1 gram enough for a Ryzen 5 and my Vega56?

u/CaptainVerum · 1 pointr/Battlefield

You can get a bigger monitor for $65. You can also put some better thermal paste in your Laptop if you think it's throttling due to heat.

u/nickthaskater · 1 pointr/lgv20

It won't fix image retention. You'll need to unlock your bootloader and flash a modified kernel to change colour settings with KCAL.

That said, Amazon.

Or you can use a thermal pad:

I've used both of the above. Currently using the pad.

u/SithKain · 1 pointr/OutOfTheLoop

This is correct, the top tier solution would have been to remove the pre-applied grease and use something more premium, like Thermal Grizzly

u/lukeg310 · 1 pointr/Alienware

you will need rubbing alcohol to clean the paste. Then try this

Is this it?

u/ShugoWah · 1 pointr/Amd


Upstairs room during a hot east coast summer, 22-25C ambient. NZXT H510 Elite case (kinda mediocre, kinda regret it, waiting on more case fans in the mail, haha)

3700x on stock settings, except for a -0.1v offset. Wraith Prism with a fan curve at 50-60% all the way up to 80C when it's allowed to kick up

Idles around 46C, games from 60C to 70C, about 78C on a lengthy Prime95 stress. Plenty of headroom below the 95C throttle and the Prism is only barely audible when my room is absolutely silent

u/crimson117 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Clean it off with high % Isopropyl Alcohol and a lint-free cloth like a paper towel.

Then apply Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut thermal paste.

u/Tim_Dale_ · 1 pointr/buildapc

Definitely not. Get a fresh tube.

Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut Thermal Grease Paste - 1.0 Gram

u/mdamaged · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Grab some Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut instead of AS5.

u/Crosive · 1 pointr/buildapc

you don't have to, but with the stuff being so cheap, why risk it?

the best I've used is this

I've noticed a few degrees difference over arctic silver, and have since used it on all my builds.

there are better solutions out there such as coolaboratory liquid ultra. But I wouldn't recommend that stuff to just anyone as it's not simply applied and done, it takes prep that possibly voids warranties, and you can't use it on aluminum.

having said that, I've seen better numbers with the liquid ultra than anything else, by a significant amount.

the next best being the kryonaut.

if anyone has anything better, I'm all ears. I'm always up for finding new and better stuff to try.

u/sk9592 · 1 pointr/buildapc

The best non-conductive paste would be Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut.

But it doesn't make financial sense for most people.

9/10 you'll do just fine with the thermal paste that comes with your cooler.

Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut Thermal Grease Paste - 1.0 Gram

Seems to be in stock?

u/MRThundrcleese · 1 pointr/techsupport

Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut is pretty much the best. Gelid GC-Extreme is the best bang for your buck

u/WolfedHD · 1 pointr/buildapc

Here's what I would do.

Maybe try out another case like the NZXT S340 Elite, it's not worth getting a case like that, this is very opinion-based, so take this with a grain of salt.

Definitely don't get a 2x4gb, get 1x8gb, so you can upgrade later on.

Get this compound paste

u/640212804843 · 0 pointsr/buildapc

For stock it shouldn't matter. You shouldn't hit thermal limits.

That said, I would probably replace it because every chip these days thermal throttles. If you are hitting the limit, you might not realize without directly monitoring the temps. So either do research to know stock cooling won't limit you at all, or just replace the paste for 10 bucks and don't worry about it.

For 10-15 bucks, you can put on better thermal paste and get better cooling with the stock cooler. Best stuff:


u/CitrusChrome · -1 pointsr/PS4

Both are non-conductive and both are not very good. If you can spring for Grizzly Kryonaut , get it as it's the best on the market right now. If you want to spend a little less for more compound, the tried and true NT-H1 is great. These are also both non-conductive.

u/cremvursti · -1 pointsr/intel

You do, but I'd advise against dishing out a crazy amount for it. A Hyper 212 evo should be more than enough. Also, get some Kryonaut since it makes a pretty big difference compared to your average AC MX-4 paste.

u/benbenkr · -1 pointsr/PS4

Neither. Get this

Also, you only need to clean it once a year if you actually CLEAN it properly. Not just blowing dust off the surface.
