The 212 is the king of CPU cooling VALUE. The H100i is a watercooler and will cool better but it is WAY more expensive. You might as well as get a really good air cooler for cheaper but still performs within margin. I suggest the NH-D14 like bigcyco1 said.

Yea the thermal paste is great. You should be able to get to 4.0 easily.
