I got interesting results in my laptop, while the overall temperatures were not lower than my Arctic MX-4 (2 degrees of difference though)
After a month the Arctic would become crazy (probably pump-out effect) instead, after 5 months the Kryonaut is holding well without a single difference

I ran out of Kryonaut so, I'm currently using Hydronaut. The temps seem to be about the same so far.
