Hi everyone ! I have a some question about performance of Coollaboratory Liquid Pro vs Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut when placed between die and IHS . I saw the conductivity of Liquid Pro is 80 w/mk and Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut is 73 w/mk but it is just a number of manufacturer
said not real .

I tried to search the comparison of CLP and Conductonaut but I saw only the comparison of Liquid Ultra vs Conductonaut not the Lidquid Pro . Did anyone try compare liquid pro and Conductonaut between die and IHS ?

I cant tell anything about Thermal Grizzly just because i have always used Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra and i am very happy with it, i do not need to try Thermal Grizzly.

I could've sworn I saw a smaller number for liquid pro but a few months back...

Either way, Thermal grizzly is an easier application, and I would think the difference negligible.

It doesn't really matter since they're essentially the same thing, a Gallium, Indium & Tin alloy AKA Galinstan. So just get whichever is cheaper.

For some strange reason, I find Phobya LM works best for me, it's the way it bonds to the surface.

It doesn't works for everyone in the same way, no all PCs works the same way, for you it worked but maybe for someone else it won't.

This is an example:
Your wrong though. You assumed we all go by reviews. You should always go by what works best. You should always decide what to buy based on the average of multiple sources. The world is full of conflicting information. You should never base a decision off of one source. Thats why multiple review sites and forums exist. So I, you, and others can post there finding to help (in this case the OP) potentially find a product that fits there needs.

Dont be like this tonight. I am not feeling it.

You can offer so much more to this community then being petty. Be a better person today.

I have both brands here, but I opened the Thermal Grizzly first, so that's the one I'm using now. Works great too.

You people believe too much in Reviews.
We're on a site that reviews products, so yeah, we like seeing reviews here.
Plus, we ~trust~ what we read here.

This is just the test for notebook with copper heatsink no for between die and IHS . Gallium alloy with cooper so liquid meta will dry after 2-3 month
Do all Gallium alloys really dry out on copper? I have heard this before but thermal grizzly's products actually say copper is ok as a material...

Conductonaught cannot be used on anything aluminum, that includes the IHS, it causes exfoliation.

We all know that I think. I'm curious about copper though. I know nickel (or nickel-plated) is ok.

You apply it on copper and the exposed surface of the copper immediately becomes "plated" with some kind of silver looking material. That can only be removed with harsh abrasion(or perhaps a strong acid). You also notice that, after a period of use on said copper surface, part of, or all, of the liquid metal has "crystallized"/become solid.

Conclusion: Some component of the liquid metal compound has come out of suspension and reacted chemically with the copper(I'm guessing it's the gallium). Causing the "plating" on the copper surface and an imbalance in the compound whereas its solid metal constituents revert to their solid state(obviously the indium and tin, and/or whatever else is in there that isn't liquid at room temperature in its "natural" state).

Other than Ivy Bridge, I have not run into an instance where I could justify the time, effort and risk to delid a CPU. The highest core voltage setting I have ever used was 1.3875 and that resulted in initial temps under RoG Real Bench from 71 to 79C. Measured core voltages jumped up to 1.41 or so during testing and when AVX was present, up to 1.51 for fractions of a second. Temps toned down a bit after a few weeks but, in actual daily usage with real world applications and games, rarely get into the low 60s.

Delidding could earn me some bragging rights but has no practical value. I didn't build the PC to run synthetic applications that will never be used again during it's useful lifel, so may target is highest possible OC with applications that I might actually use in a a multi tasking environment. To get a higher OC, I'd have to increase voltage even more and 1.4-ish under stress testing and 1.5-ish for microbursts is as far as I'm comfy doing.

Proof here

And here

Coolabartory is a different alloy formulation. I meant specifically Thermal Grizzly since they got out of their way to say copper is ok...

conductonaut is working great for me roughly a year later, used on a 3570k, 3770k, 4770k and 6600k

on all chips i got about 15-20C drop when OC'd to 4.5GHz or higher
