HYPER 212 EVO Thermal paste?

I got myself a Hyper 212 Evo heatsink so I can overclock my Haswell i5 to 4.2 Ghz(gonna be a challenge I know). I opened the package up and it happens to come with CM thermal paste. Would you guys use that paste or go for a better solution? I want to be able to get a really nice seal, since the last time I used a stock cooler I almost screwed up my Mobo since the paste didnt sit correctly.

  1. Use the paste provided, if temps aren't what you want, buy something else.

  3. I would say try to provided paste. $10-20 paste is usually overrated.
  4. Stay with cm paste. You already bought an aftermarket heatsink and really $15 more for a better paste will make a 4 degree difference, if that. If you want to buy better paste, spend 15 more on a better cooler instead. The cooler makes more difference than the kind of paste you use.
  5.
