Score 0 Best solution amuffin a c 150 K Overclocking November 20, 2012 6:29:32 AM The H55 has preapplied paste, you should use it because it saves you the trouble of doing it yourself. Don't worry, you won't see that much of a difference if you used your own pasted. HOWEVER, I do recommend something else like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO as it is cheaper and performs relatively near the H55, but at a much lower price.
