Yes! Arctic Silver 5 is a great thermal compound. Personally, I would not rely on any thermal compound that came with the heatsink. Go with Arctic Silver 5, and use the application procedure from their website.

The thermal compound that comes with it is just fine.

As5 might give you a 1c difference, but I doubt it.

As5 also takes over 100hrs to cure, which is why I never recommend it. There are better options that work just as well or better that require no cure at all.

The stock compound on the 212+ works really well. I wouldn't waste $10 for AS5.
