    No I have not, but I have a list of pastes and pads that I intend to try thanks to some of the releveant posts.

    Also, none of my thermal system are bent as far as I can tell.

    Typically they are only subtly bent and you need something that is very true to see the bend. My only word of caution is if it is bent be very careful should you choose to rebend it because the heatpipes are EASY to bend/pinch.

    Also Toms hardware has a list of thermal paste viscosity:

    The carbon nanotube pads will perform even worse with a bent/crooked heatsink..
    Can be as simple as thermal pads that force the heatsink to not seat parallel to the die.

    By the way heatsinks are created(soldering heatpipes into cooper plates) they are always uneven due to the stress caused by the heating and cooling, I gained around 8ºC just by lapping my GT75 heatsinks..

    I personally have tried Phobya Nanogrease, its (really) good the first few days, then it degrades fast. I cant seem to find IC Diamond at reasonable price (almost 30€ for the paste with shipping)

    Other pastes I have tried were mx4 and GC Gelid Extreme.

    Thermalright TFX doesn't degrade like Kryonaut does, is excellent for sub-zero, and doesn't pump out very easily either.

    I'm gonna have to try out that paste then. I have a whole collection of thermal pastes going now :D.

    How is your experience with this paste?
    Phobya NanoGrease Extreme decreases performance pretty shortly on my current laptop.
