    Right now I'm using Noctua NT-H1. I'm almost out and have to pull off my g10 to replace the fan. Is there a better thermal paste I can use that's non conductive?

    I'm currently using Thermal Grizzly Hydronaut on my rig, non-conductive, silicone safe, and has been fantastic.

    I'm going to have to check it out. I'm pushing low temps on Gpu, 41c maxed out BF1, but I wanna see if i can get it lower and get my 7700k to 5.0

    I'm using liquid metal now but I've used MX4, Noctua NT-H1, and Kryonaut in the past and all of those performed with in 1-3C of each other. With LM I got about a 5C improvement on my water setup.

    Partial to bologna myself.

    But seriously. Careful application goes a long way. Used good old Shin Etsu x23 on my last card and dropped temps significantly. Anything was better than atrociously applied paste by the factory robot.
