Is the Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut actually good?

Go to solution Solved by porina,

I have a large tube of this and also MX-4. There are consistency differences with MX-4 being slightly more runny, but both work great.

 

I have to wonder what people didn't like about Kryonaut? At least in my experience it is as easy to apply as most pastes and have both good performance and long term stability.

LOTS and LOTS of great reviews on it, they say it is one of the bests thermal paste's out there...

But when i look in to cusstomer reviews you got 10 procent of the reviews where people say it sucks really hard. makes me insecure about using the thermal paste when i build my pc.

It is the best one currently. But really there is not much difference between the thermalpastes. Crap a good paste like MX 4 whioch costs much less and be happy :)

Tier lists for building a PC.

 

Motherboard tier list. Tier A for overclocking 5950x. Tier B for overclocking 5900x, Tier C for overclocking 5800X. Tier D for overclocking 5600X. Tier F for 4/6 core Cpus at stock. Tier E avoid.

(Also case airflow matter or if you are using Downcraft air cooler)

Spoiler

 

Gpu tier list. Rtx 3000 and RX 6000 not included since not so many reviews. Tier S for Water cooling. Tier A and B for overcloking. Tier C stock and Tier D avoid.

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Spoiler

 

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

people sayd the temps are bad, the paste is crumbly or there are pieces in the paste or that people have to replace the paste every year

I did a little bit of testing in the past. I currently use Kryonaut on my CPU and Conductonaut on my GPU which reduced average GPU temps by about 10c

I have also tried mx-4 but Kryonaut still beat it

This is the texture. For example, if you compare honey to water, the honey is harder to flow than water. The water "runs" better, or more runny.

I have to wonder if there are fake products out there, or could there be a bad batch in the past? I did look quickly at Amazon reviews. The 1 star reviews seems to be more about the lack of product in the smaller size for the cost. The descriptions some other made didn't not match my experience with the product, so again I have to wonder if there was either a bad batch or possibly fake product getting out there.

Fake products are a real thing but they are really rare, buy off Amazon and it should be legit. TG products all come in resealable pouches and have little certificates of authenticity inside where you can use a code on the site to verify it

I don't recall a certificate of authenticity when I got mine, but it was a long time ago and I might have forgotten. Still, that they do this suggests a risk of imitations.

 

Of course I have no evidence of such, but given there are reports out there on the product that don't match what is expected, what possible explanations are there? Fake reviews maybe? Otherwise bad/fake product is a candidate. When you get a premium product like this, some people may try to cash in on it for example by repacking a cheaper paste. If it is your first time buying it, you might not know what to expect and not realise it isn't right.
