    The CM paste is just fine, but the AS5 is slightly better, so since you already have the AS5, you might as well use it.
  2. If you don't mind doing a little cleaning you can try both and see which works best for you. Experimenting is part of the fun of doing it yourself.
  3. Either will perform wonderfully if applied correctly, it's really just a matter of personal preference here. If you have an open tube AS5, might as well just use it, that's my reckoning.
