Have you folks heard of Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut Thermal Grease Paste for AIO system,  any good?

conductonaut is a liquid metal. It performs much better than any paste. It is best for delidding CPUs and GPU coolers. The only problem with it is that it's more difficult to apply and remove, and if you put too much it might leak out and short something.
If you just want something for your cpu cooler, arctic mx4 would be my suggestion.

I tried that IC graphite thermal pad this Summer, it didn't work well. I had it on my Ryzen 3900x, and in full load the temp went up to 94C, then I switched to Thermal Grizzle and it dropped to 87C. It didn't work well on my old 4770k system either, with the stock Corsair AIO paste, it was in the 50Cs at full load, with the pad, it was in the 60Cs.


I'm suspecting that it doesn't work with high ambient temp. My room was at 32C in the Summer.
