I am going to get a H100i and a I5-4670K
I was going to get a silver 5 but my dad had an extra pair of HP THERMAL GREASE SYRINGE 390717-001
are they good ? if yes better or less than silver 5?

Best solution

Really there is little difference. Yes arctic silver is better, but you really won't notice any difference unless you look for it. If anything make sure that it is spread properly and you should be ok.

As said above. The difference between any sort of thermal paste is very small.

The H100i comes with thermal paste pre-applied anyway. So use that.
