    Hmm, is this perhaps linked to the underwhelming temperature benefit from the addition of the 2nd CPU fan to the TM CPU heatsink? That 2nd 'floating' grille is attached halfway up the heatpipes?

    I wonder how something like this would fare in a laptop like this one or with an 8700k.

    Tests are showing slightly worse than paste but stable so perhaps in a machine like an ASUS where you have to tear it down to the board and flip it out to get to the heatsinks it might be a no brainer. For a machine that's easy to service then it depends on the person being willing to service it every so often.

    Now is that regular paste or LM paste? I'm quite mobile with my machines and my big worry is leakage.

    Enthusiast level paste. Kryonaut, nanogrease etc.

    Linus' simple review test showed about one degree C behind IC Diamond for example.

    It needs a good fitting heatsink. Its very thin and slippery. But, with nothing to oxidise or evaporate, longevity and cleanliness are giant upsides.

    Also paste and liquid metal only move about the place if there's big gobs of it sitting inbetween big gaps on badly fitting heatsink surfaces. If you're worried there's foam dams or other ways to give a bit of surface protection

    Use regular paste or the pad then if you are concerned.
