ste-2000 v Kryonaut [amazon]
over 10 c higher with grizzly paste.
Ive cleaned and swapped back and forth pastes, a few times to verify.
What is happening?

I'm not trying to be a jerk today but do you honestly type like that?

It wouldn't hurt to proof-read for a minute and post up thumbnail embedded links.

Did you buy it straight from Amazon or from a third party vendor? Kryonaut is top tier stuff, so getting terrible performance like that means that you either got an inexplicably bad batch from the factory (unlikely), or you got swindled by a seller who bought cheap-ass, garbage-tier paste in bulk and filled Kryonaut syringes with it to resell for a profit.

You used too much paste

Definitely, but from my limited experience with it, that stuff conducts heat well enough that even a bad OEM-style application like that still wouldn't butcher thermal performance to like what OP's getting. Unless it's actually so much that OP's inadvertently failing to apply proper mount pressure on the cooler because of the huge gap left between the IHS and coldplate.

First of all, you can't get bad temps by using too much paste, but yes you did use too much, it shouldn't be spilling over the sides of your Processor into the socket housing.

Just buy some Noctual NT-H1 Paste or some IC Diamond & be done. Both IC Diamond & Noctua are very well established brands, for good reason. No need to buy the "exotic" stuff, it doesn't do a better job, but their marketing will tell you otherwise.

Also, what are your real world temps?

am i the only one who still uses AS5 in the giant ass 12g tube from like 5 years ago? couldn't count how many cpus and video cards ive used the same tube on and still half a tube left, all these new fancy ones don't see to be any better. all with margin of error

while i dont think too much paste is causing you problem since excess gets pushed out, you have enough paste on that cpu for 6 applications :)

Arctic Silver 5 is and likely will always be my paste of choice until we get a clearly better option.

Update:
An Indian Guy after a few mins of chatting said he would process a refund 3-5 days.. I called 2 days later again and it was never processed. The new guy sounds Philippine[ always somebody with an accent and hard to understand] Said the same thing he will process a instant refund this takes 3-5 days to receive.
But it will be refunded before I send the grizzly back to amazon. I guess Normally they need to receive the stuffs first.
Im not holding my breath. I WILL NOLONGER use Amazon. I am also waiting for resolution if there is any to Blow up feedback to that company with all the juicy details.

So basically you didn’t look at who the seller was before buying the item and it’s Amazon’s fault? And apparently you dont know you can just request a refund online and get a RMA label sent to you?

Definitely a bad/fake batch here. I'm running Hydronaut on my personal rig (ordered from Performance PCs) and it has been flawless.

We use Prolimatech PK-3 on the [H] cooler test platform. It is some damn fine paste as well, albeit with a bit of a learning curve to get a good application.

You used too much even if it's legit TG. On my 6600k, I got the best results with barely more than enough to cover the heat spreader in a "haze" of TIM. I could still read the info on the cpu through it.

I just put some on my GPU but noticed it isn't getting even mounting pressure at first and my temps were higher as well. I reapplied a few times and tried to push on the back of my card and finally got the temps to drop a few C for me, nothing extreme 2-3C, I blame mounting pressure really in my case though.
It also does look like you used a bit too much. I also bought mine from amazon but may buy some more from a more PC centered source to actually test myself for counterfeit.
