    I actually just checked the pad, pressure is not a problem, I used a sheet larger than the die to see if it would leave an imprint, and it sure did, the sheet is nicely pressed in where the CPU would normally be. I'm not sure if paste would help this, I haven't seen any evidence here to prove so

    So you applied LM or did you use some kind of paste? And you saw worthwhile temp decreasing? I'm thinking up upgrading my Alienware laptop and may try one of those graphite pads if I can find it equal/better than kryonaut. Most pages I found seem to have compared the IC graphite to IC Diamond LM

    You seem to be very confused. I had liquid ultra on before the pad, tried ic graphite, it sucked compared to liquid ultra, so I went back. Graphite pad is not better than phobya nanogrease extreme or kryonaut. IC diamond does not make liquid metal TIM, only IC Diamond paste and IC graphite pad.


    My preference has been, and continues to be, liquid ultra.

    By the gods after going through the entire thread my head is :wacko:.But in conclusion (feel free to correct me) the soft pgs pad is **** even with good contact, works as a good sandwich between lm and better to go with with lm or phobya / gelid.

    On the off note: what has been the better or best traditional paste after all this time + the best lm ? Why i ask is there is a lot of different opinions and would like to hear from experts.@Mr. Fox,@Papusan

    P.S in simple terms is the soft pgs pad good enough to replace traditional tim ?

    I think the conclusion drawn in this thread is that in general it cannot make enough contact to replace those TIMs.
