Are you looking for the best thermal paste? In this video we’ll break down the top thermal
paste options available whilst comparing them for price versus performance. Before we get started with our video detailing
the best thermal paste on the market, we have included links in the description for each
product mentioned, so make sure you check those out to see which one is in your budget
range. Starting off at number 1 we have the Thermal
Grizzly Kryonaut. While liquid metal thermal compounds are amazing,
you may need an alternative for your slick aluminum low profile CPU coolers. Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut is one such solution
and a solid choice when Conductonaut isn’t an option. Kryonaut is similar to the company’s liquid-based
solution, but this one is a non-conductive thermal grease paste. That means it’s safe and perfect if you’re
new to the scene although you still need to be cautious with the syringe. Let the applicator do the work, as there’s
not much grease in the syringe and it’s only available in 1 gram sizes. The only drawback to this paste is the price
as it doesn’t go far but is very effective. It’s a definite step up from Arctic Silver
in our eyes, just be prepared to pick up a few tubes if you have a massive setup or more
than one machine to treat. At number 2 we have the Arctic MX-4. Arctic makes a slew of PC accessories including
CPU coolers and thermal compound paste. We chose a product from their MX lineup dubbed
Arctic MX-4, a carbon-based solution for consumers that need to cut down the heat but aren’t
comfortable using liquid metal. Arctic’s thermal paste compound is non-conductive
which makes it safe in case you get a little crazy with the syringe – it happens. The carbon mixture is ideal for heat transfer
and durable to boot. The company claims you’ll get around eight
years per application and there are three sizes to choose from. That’s handy in case you’re running a
repair shop and need the best thermal paste for GPU upgrades or CPUs. We feel this is one of the best TIM for users
with high-end machines, but not much experience with compounds of this nature. That’s because it’s easy to use, and you
won’t have to worry about damaging components if there’s a mishap. MX-4 is available in three sizes with 2, 4
or 20 grams depending on your needs. At number 3 we have the Thermal Grizzly Condutonaut. When you use a bear as your mascot and the
term Grizzly in your product line, you better make sure you deliver the goods. Well, we’re pleased to say Thermal Grizzly
Conductonaut is one of the best thermal pastes for CPU swaps and a fan favorite among PC
builders. This is a liquid metal compound that can deliver
a drop of 8 degrees or better. It has increased indium content that’s mixed
with tin, gallium and based on a eutectic alloy. It has a thermal resistance of 0.0021 K/W
while the conductivity clocks in at 73W/mk, so it’s stable and not just in the short-term. In a nutshell, it’s an excellent compound
that will not disappoint. As mentioned, you’ll want to have some experience
under your belt with liquid metal compounds, and Conductonaut is one of the more expensive
options in this class. It’s well worth the money, but you’ll
want to be careful as you’ll only get 1 gram in a syringe. At number 4 we have the Noctua NT-H1. Some manufacturers give you the scoop on what’s
in their syringe while others are a little more mysterious. NT-H1 from Noctua falls into the latter category
as it’s a hybrid compound designed for use on tech that needs to stay cool under extreme
loads. This non-conductive thermal paste won’t
corrode which makes it an excellent choice for GPU coolers of all styles. Compressor coolers are also a lock as this
compound is easy to spread and doesn’t require a burn-in period like some pastes. This grey goop will need to be replaced every
3 years and has a shelf life of 2 years before it starts to break down. We may not be sure what’s in Noctua’s
syringe, but believe us when we say it works. Each package has a 3.5-gram syringe which
is good for up to 20 CPUs or several sinks depending on their size. It’s an excellent paste overall, just keep
the lifespan in mind as other compounds will hold up a bit longer. At number 5 we have the MasterGel Maker Nano. If you’re looking for something exotic,
Cooler Master has a solution. The company’s MasterGel Maker Nano uses
an unusual substance in its mix which makes it easy to spread and immune to other issues. Worried about oxidation or erosion in your
build? This paste is designed to give you peace of
mind in those areas. There are nanodiamond particles in this exotic
hybrid compound, which means less gaps and a more efficient heat transfer between components
and your heatsink. We’re also fans of the viscosity which makes
removal and application simple, even if you’re inexperienced. Cooler Master’s compound comes 4 grams per
syringe which is par for the course with thermal paste. You may need more if you have a lot of components
to deal with, but will appreciate the included spreader and cleaner either way. At number 6 we have the Coollaboratory Liquid
Ultra Thermal Paste. Ready for some serious grease? If so, you’ll want to consider Coollaboratory’s
compound which is guaranteed to drop your temperatures several degrees. This thermal paste is another popular option
gamers, and overclockers stand behind, but not one for novices. It’s liquid metal, so while it will cool
things down, you will want to take care to and not let it get away from you. You’ll also want to clean the area thoroughly
before applying Liquid Ultra if you want the full effect of this compound. While you’ll need a good brush and some
patience for this product, the results speak for themselves. It’s reasonably priced and made from 100%
metal although only available in one size. It’s also not ideal for aluminum or other
alloys that don’t play nice with liquid thermal pastes of this nature. And for our final pick at number 7 we have
the Innovation Cooling Diamond “7 Carat” Thermal Compound. When silver doesn’t impress you, diamond
is another exotic option used in some thermal compounds today. Innovations Cooling’s 7-carat compound doesn’t
quite live up to its namesake but is a great thermal conductor nonetheless. 7 Carat thermal compound has some unique properties
compared to other greases on our list. It’s a high-performance substance that can
outlast others with its mix of synthetic diamond. It provides more thermal conductivity than
silver and will reach peak performance after only 2 hours of use. The break-in period is minimal with this paste. While you won’t get 7 carats of diamonds
from this syringe, it gets the job done and comes 1.5 grams per package. It’s one of the best thermal compounds around,
and a little goes a long way given its consistency. So that sums up our top thermal paste options
of 2020. We hope you enjoyed. If you did please leave a like on the video
