What would be the best thermal paste for the CM Hyper 212 EVO and the FX-6300?

I'm building my PC soon and I need to know what thermal paste to get. I'm going to be doing a little big of overclocking but nothing to high. What should I get, or is the paste that comes with it good?

    Just use the one that is supplied with the CM Hyper 212 EVO. The better, or best paste will only make a few Celsius in difference.
