    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.
  2. 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.
