    I believe Liquid Metal is sold under the Conductonaut brand.

    Conductonaut is Thermal Grizzly's Liquid metal thermal paste, there are many others from other companies. Kryonaut does not need a damn/barrier like a liquid metal would.

    So in GTA V with Turbo disabled and lowest settings (how I usually play), I get GPU and CPU both below 65C (light fans). It's definitely running cooler than it was before with stock and/or MX-4

    With Turbo enabled and lowest settings, I get 70C on the GPU and up to 85C on the CPU

    With Turbo enabled and highest settings, I get about the same as on the lowest settings. CPU is a bit lower, mostly below 80C

    GPU is using Arctic MX-4, not Kryonaut since I never had issues with the GPU getting too hot with MX-4.

    No, Kryonaut won't really spill and it's a pretty 'regular' thermal paste, but it seems to be better than your average thermal paste.

    If you were to use liquid metal however, I'd definitely recommend a foam barrier to prevent spillage... but if Kryonaut does the trick, stick to that instead.

    I read somewhere that kryonaut isn't good for longevity, I personnaly use Noctua NT-H2 thermal paste which is a lot better than my MX4 but not as great as liquid metal :)

    Grizzly Kryonaut will pump out faster due the thinner and creamy consistency. With laptops worse cooling vs. good desktop cooling this is doomed to happen faster. der8auer is shareholder in Grizzly company and he recommend re-paste after 1 year due mentioned reason. This on desktops who have better coolers/better fits/better pressure/better cold plate.

    Kryonaut on GPU works good aswell, I got a few degrees drop going from MX4 to Kryonaut on laptop gpu :)

    About longevity:
    No degradation on one of my laptops after 2 years, same on one of my desktop after a year. However, but systems don't exceed 80C during load, typically stay around 60-75C.

    I can confirm it works well.

    It made a dramatic difference in temps with my xps 15 9560.
