Long story short, I just put together a custom water cooling loop and I'm not SUPER impressed with the temperatures and was wondering if break in periods for thermal paste is still a thing? I used Prolimatech Pk-3, although my water block came with something called Thermal Grizzly and Ive got some Cool Laboratory Liquid Ultra laying around. Should I stick with the PK-3 for a little longer or try one of the other two?

Thermal Grizzly is one of the best (if not the best), thermal compound on the market today. The curing period almost doesn't exist in those newest compounds. Could you explain a bit more why you not impressed with the temps you have. Normally custom WC loop should lover the temps at least 5 degrees comparing to High End Air Coolers. I'm using PK-3 for my GPU Water blocks and Thermal Grizzly for my CPU Water Block, have no complains at all.
Always look beyond the limits...
