    Hi what if I told you my cpu temp increased after applying liquid metal (grizzly conductonaut). Applied decent amount and was able to cover fully(but not like pool of water) and a little bit on heatsink as well. Now cpu is idling 75-85 lol got worse. What could have gone wrong?

    Sounds like you've either misaligned the heatsink or bent it during removal.

    You did something wrong. If you put anything over the SMDs with electrical tape or something similar you may have increased the gap size and the heatsink is no longer making good contact with the CPU (or it was never making good contact to begin with). You may also not have put enough LM on there to make good contact. The degree of difficulty when applying LM goes up by an order of magnitude IMHO, but getting worse temps = you did something wrong. Having said that, I don't recommend LM on laptops for a variety of reasons. My temps were better with Conductonaut than Kryonaut, but it wasn't worth the 2-4C to me.

    Do u think 1.5mm pad creates so too much gap between the heatsink and vram?
    I put 1.5mm pad on the vrams next to cpu under the heatsink that probably increased the gap and doesnt make good contact. Maybe i'll apply my left over noctua on them and see how it will go

    That very well could be the culprit. Put the stock pads back in and see.

    Dont have the stock pads. Thermal paste could work? I've seen some people do that

    Yes did it. i got jaw dropping 20C cooler o_O . Now the cpu is around 78 when gaming and 77 on the gpu. All the ambients pretty cool as well thanks to the pads. Their temps are hovering around 60-70.
