  1. This thread will serve as a guide for new comers to the forum and will possibly reduce the time reading through long never ending threads. TL.DR; This will guide in choosing the best thermal paste that suits you. Well Known Brands: Thermal Grizzly (aka TG) Coollaboratory (aka CLL) Phobya Gelid Prolimatech IC Diamond Cooler Master Noctua Traditional Paste: [No specific order] TG Kryonaut Extreme: 14.2 W/mK replacing TG Kyronaut [Thanks to Papusan and @solidus1983] Phobya NanoGrease Extreme 16 W/mK { Thanks Mr.Fox} Gelid Extreme 8.5 W/mK ICD 7: 4.5 W/mK Prolimatech PK3: 11.2 W/mK Cooler Master MasterGel Maker : 11 W/mK [ Thanks bloodhawk] Noctua NT-H1 Cooler Master CryoFuze: 14 W/mK Thermalright TFX: 14.3 W/mK Kingpin Cooling KPx Liquid Metal Pastes:[No specific order] TG Conductonaut *: 73 W/mK Coollaboratory Ultra or Pro *: 68 W/mK [Thanks Papusan ] Phobya LM *: 40 W/mK [Thanks Papusan ] Thermalright Silver King*: 79W/mK [Thanks Papusan ] _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Sorry this is non exhaustive list. * indicates important notes whilst the use of metal paste. Heat sink must be copper The surface of heatsink and cpu/gpu must be clean to provide even contact because metal paste will fill the air gap like a thin film The surface have to be completely flat, and the contact between the heatsink and the die have to be PERFECT ( minimum gap between both) { credit to judal57 for this} Tape the outer die of CPU or GPU to avoid spillage due to over-application of paste Use spatula paint brush or similar, to even out the paste on the die and apply remaining paste on the heat sink (Thanks to Papusan) @Rofa1234's detailed thermal paste testing results: So here are my results. This is the average degrees of 4 cores+ambient temperature correction (between 0.0-1.0 degrees). I will add detailed core and ambient temperatures later on. Too much for now
