thermal paste does not make your heatsink better.I was also looking for a good paste to use for my new Acer Nitro 5.
The CPU is always getting up to 95°C, for now I used MX-5, but I barely see a difference compared to the stock paste. But I even see a spike to 97°C now.
For now I throttled the CPU TDP with XTU because I'm too worried of it getting too hot.
So you guys say Syy 157 and thermalright TF-8 are good pastes to go with?
which one of the two would you recommend?
i used a lot of pastes and i have MX5 on my 3090 and 6900XT with great success.
remember. direct die = manual application of paste (spread it until the whole die is covered)
if it does not help it's a bad heatsink design.
