    I did a quick thermal paste swap with some thermal grizzly kryonaught and my temps seem way to high
    Currently, I get around 63-64c on my soc when leaving the switch for 30 mins in korok forest.
    This is with stock clocks btw.
    other than the fact that i live in a slightly warmer place i do not know what could be causing these temps
    please help me figure out this issue

    Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound
    Is my goto compound pc or console
    With good results

    It's all about how its applied
    You dont need a mountain of compound
    In fact if you use to much it makes your temps higher
    Just like a grain of rice size or less
    Depending on size of cpu/gpu
    Make sure both cpu and heatsink are clean
    Some isopropyl is a good cleaning solution
    As its alcohol based so will evaporate

    Too much thermal paste doesn't affect thermals. It's just a bit messy.

    Yes it does
    All compound does is level out the cpu and heatsink to allow good heat transfer
    Dont give bad advice mate

    The mounting pressure of the heatsink squeezes out any excess.

    Too much compound will not allow the heatsink to seat properly you only need the smallest amount
    You will just end up warpping the heatsink as the compound can only compress so much

    Are you on crack? thermal compound isn't hard enough to warp metal it's a PASTE for fucks sake.

    You dont know what your talking about mate the heatsink is aluminium one of the softest metals you can bend it with your hands
    And as for the compound at contains silver particles also it doesn't need to be solid to put pressure on the heatsink
    How do you think hydraulics works a liquid moves a solid
    Go ahead put loads of compound on yours
    Just don't give poor advice to others

    Microscopic silver particles aren't going to bend solid aluminium.

    No you are correct if done properly a small amount but if we do things as you suggest and use a mountain load of compound combined with pressure and the heat of the cpu then that's a different matter altogether thats the prefect combination to warp the heatsink nobody is saying bending but it only takes a microscopic gap for the temps to rise
    The whole point of using thermal compound is to fill the imperfections between the cpu and heatsink it's not glue your not sticking on
    tbh mate I've given my advice to the op
