Antec 7 paste or CM 212 EVO stock paste?

I have Antec 7 from when I fixed my PS3 YLOD but the 212 EVO comes with its own paste.

Which should I use?

I've read Antec 7 is better than AS5, but I can't seem to find anything on the paste that comes with the 212 EVO

  1. AS% even after beigmore than 2 years old - is still a strong performer. If i had to choose between teh two TIM's I'd go with the AS5 route, however i reserve my TIM choices to MX-2/4, Prolimatech PK-1, Shinetsu + ICD24.

    The cooler master stock thermal paste is a great performer. Though, it does not perform as well as the antec-7 but performs roughly 1-2C hotter. Refer to it as cooler master compound or stock cooler master compound.
