    I have Kryonaut and I think it is not performing decently.

    As I don’t know if my Clevo P970EF has a copper heatsink I would like to open a poll for what can be the best thermal paste for both CPU and GPU.

    I wold love to apply Conductonaut on the CPU and keep Kryonaut on the GPU.

    The 8750h undervolted reaches 100 degrees playing Battlefield V.

    The RTX 2070 maxQ gets to 85 max.

    How true is it that Kryonaut performs badly over 80 degrees celsius? Best alternative? Noctua NT-H2?

    Kryonaught is designed to work well at sub zero temperatures but i've not had an issue with it.

    Battlefield V is a complete system hammer as it loads both CPU/GPU to high levels.

    What maximum temperatures do you have? Thank you.

    I have the NP9877 so a VERY different machine and it's actually fully liquid metal throughout so not really applicable.

    The contact plate (The part touching the die) is always copper at least.

    You have to be careful with liquid metal, the tolerances for contact are much tighter and if it gets out it can easily kill your system.

    If I apply Conductonaut I will apply a nail polish coating and then tape.

    But what I am afraid of is that just below that part it may not be copper and it will corrode.

    If it's spreading out from the contact area you have bigger worries.

    Best is liquid metal. If you do not want to use it - then try IC Diamond. It will last the longest out of all conventional pastes with low pressure heatsink in laptops but you must be very careful because it may scratch the surface of CPU and GPU.

    I have not checked that. I am waiting for MX4 to arrive to repaste and look.
