    "Below are the conductivity numbers for the top Liquid Metals and Traditional Paste:
    (As we know the numbers don't mean everything, however, from all my tests done so far, Grizzly Conductonaut has always topped CLLU by an average of ~3C. Results may vary. However, because I am repasting, every drop in C's count. It could make all the difference in some scenarios. To each his own...)

    Liquid Metals:
    Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut - 73 W/mk
    Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra - 38.4 W/mk
    Coollaboratory Liquid Pro - 32.6 W/mk

    Traditional Paste:
    Gelid GC Extreme: 8.5 W/mk
    Grizzly Kyronaut: 12.5 W/mk
    ICD: 4.5 W/mk

    I have a shot of Grizzly Conductonaut on the way and will be repasting my 17R3, yes both CPU and GPU.


    Pre-Game Thoughts:


    Well...numbers are numbers so we won't know until it's actually tested, but according to the conductivity numbers being almost double compared to CLLU/P....well? - As I've shared my thoughts with
    @sirleeofroy, my theory is that the higher conductivity of GC could allow the AW to cool at it's maximum efficiency in respect to the laptops maximum ability to draw out the heat. So whatever that limit is, GC may allow that to happen even more effectively...who knows...however, if GC pans out to be even 1C better than CLLU/P, then it's good enough for me to switch. Why? Because when we're dancing in the territory where even 1C can make the difference of thermal throttling or not...well you get the drift. 1C equates to a lot in this sport."

    I was starting to feel a bit uncomfortable with RAID 5, especially after my desktop died and I needed those backups (thankfully I had them). So I want to move over the RAID 6, which needs an extra two or three drives over what I'm currently running. I was thinking about what to get for the past few months since I was debating on whether to keep using Ubuntu Server or to move to FreeNAS. However, FreeNAS requires some expensive hardware changes and it didn't have some features I wanted to play with (such as VM hosting, which is on Corral but Corral has been "recalled", so to speak). Plus, Newegg was having a sale on the 3TB drives, bringing them down to $100 each.

    So I'll be moving from a RAID 5 6TB setup to a RAID 6 9TB setup :)

    Nice. I've got a FreeNAS system myself (currently 2 mirrored 3 TB Reds), with a Asrock Rack E3C236D2I motherboard with 16 GB DDR4 ECC RAM, and a Pentium G4500. I upgraded to Corral, but the whole debacle made me revert back to 9.10. They're apparently implementing bhyve and VMs in the next point update.

    Dude, how can you forget about buying a $700 GPU?!?

    Forgetfulness and having money to burn. Both hallmarks of old age.

    Fiio X1 2nd Generation + 128GB SanDisk microSD card. It's about time I move away from my ancient 2nd generation iPod mini.
