Great for CPU and LN Cooling - Not suitable for GPU application
Reviewed in Australia on 7 May 2021
Decided to purchase this as a gamble one day.
Comparing this to Noctua NT-H1 and Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut. Using it on MSI 5700XT Gaming X.
Thermal conductivity -
TG Kryonaut - 12.5 wm/k
CM Mastergel Maker - 11 W/mK
Noctua NT-H1 - 8.5 W/mK
TG Kryonaut - is low viscous, very easy to spread.
CM Mastergel Maker - Medium viscous, easy to spread.
Noctua NT-H1 - High viscous, medium difficulty to spread.
Thermal results - (tested over a 1 month period with avg of 30hrs of gaming)
TG Kryonaut - GPU temp - 70c Hotspot - 83c
CM Mastergel Maker - GPU temp - 72c Hotspot - 85c
Noctua NT-H1 - GPU temp - 80c Hotspot - 95c
Now here's the issue -
TG Kryonaut - Though great temps initially, suffers from pump out effect, where over a period of time, the thermal cycling causes the paste to pump out of to the edges and the temps eventually rise.
Not good for GPU environment.
CM Mastergel Maker - Great temps, but also suffers from pump out over a period of time aswell.
Noctua NT-H1 - average temps, but does not suffer from pump out effect. will hold temps consistently over a period of time.
