    I actually haven’t had a chance to game much so not sure yet. If there’s a test you want me to run and post the results, I can try doing that and post the results

    Nothing in particular just was wondering what temps you had when gaming.
    Just trying to see the temp difference between Kryonaut vs Conductonaut .
    Thanks

    AFAIK Liquid Metal applications degrade copper-based heatsinks on the long term. And I'm quite sure that GE75 has a copper heatsink. I would not personally use LM. For sure its short-term performance is much better than any high-end conventional paste, but I would not be comfortable with the idea of my heatsink being corroded over time. Maybe I'm wrong and the modern LM and heatsinks respect each other. Any chemist on the room? ;)

    :rolleyes:
    Go to 12:30. Liquid metal is perfectly fine. The most you get is some staining but performance of the heatsink is fully retained. By all means though use normal paste, leave the best performance for the rest of us :)

    This is correct. It's not really about the damage, and LM is the best performing one. Considering these machines are non upgradeable, I wonder if they would be better off downright soldering the heatsink hahaha :) permanent solution :p

    Was responding to @Txordi about him saying it may "corrode" over time, which is incorrect.

    Yes I know, I was agreeing with you. Its more like a stain that doesn't affect performance at all, as has been tested by several users over the years.

    played a bit of Subnotica today and temps I dont think went past 83c, it did power limit throttle once though.
    I have not done any modification/undervolting, this is just how it was with the Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut repaste upload_2019-2-12_23-41-17.png
