"Best" Thermal Paste?

 Share

Hello lovely LTT-Community ❤️ 

 

I wanted to ask if there is any good thermal paste? Currently i use the Noctua NT-H1 for my Ryzen 7 1700X at 4GHz. When i do a stresstest with Aida64 for 1 hour it get's never over 60° Celsius.

I hope you guys can recommend me a good thermal paste that is a bit better then the NT-H1.

best ?

 

Arguably...

Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut (non metalic)

or

Conductonaut (liquid metal)

 

NT-H1 is no slouch tbh, its a good TIM.

even better paste can only bring temps by another 1 or 2 C down, so don't expect much

Thermal paste is near meaningless, just get a decent one and call a day.

I would have expected round about 5° Celsius difference but really only 1 to 2? Thats kinda low :/

It depends on various factors, but generally between the better ones the differences in practice aren't great. Maybe if you had a really bad one to start with you would see a bigger change.

 

The only situation where it make much of a difference is if you are delidding an Intel CPU, or going extreme overclocking.

because NT-H1 is a decent paste in the first place.

I mean.... is it even possible to buy crappy paste now-a-day? You'd have to go out of your way considering even good paste is super freaking cheap. What exactly would be considered crappy paste? I got some "questionable" paste with my hyper 212, but other wise the only pastes I've collected have been Arctic silver 6 and the noctua pastes. 

 

I mean honestly all of these results (for the normal pastes) are within margin of error in my opinion. (Unless they're using a screenprinter or tape casting to apply the paste to the CPU, there's going to be variability, certainly more than 0.1 C. I doubt the temperature sensors inside the chip are even accurate to 0.1C.)

So you guys suggest me to stick with my Noctua NT-H1?. If so it can't be helped :/ I really was hoping to lower it by about 5 degrees.
