Within the next couple of days I should have all the components I need to begin building my new gaming PC. I'm going to run with an H100i cooler on top of an i7-3770k CPU. Should I use the H100i's factory paste or should I wipe it and use some Arctic Silver 5?

The AS5 would be marginally better but will require around 100 hours to cure.

Yeah I have some AS5. It's worked well for me in the past, but I didn't know if it would be a waste to remove the H100i's paste or not.

I think I'll just go with the AS5 then. Thanks for all the replies.
