Best Thermal paste for laptop ( MSI GP73)




Looking for best thermal paste for gaming laptop.


Found that Kryonaut is usually not recommended for laptops because it will pump out (dry out) VERY quickly if the heatsink does not have a firm, solid and air gap free fit. 


Not sure for LM, i didn't use it before, and am scared that i will make demage to laptop.


What are other great choices for laptop thermal paste ?

LTT has done liquid metal on a laptop before, you could watch their video to see how they did it. If you apply it wrong, you can damage the system. But if you do it right, your temps will be quite impressive.

Otherwise, get some Arctic Silver or IC Diamond.
