This.

Personally I went for MX-4 because it doesn't have a curing period.

Any of the top 25+ TIMs works just fine. AS 5 has some capacitance but it doesn't bother anything. People have used it for years. The cure time only changes the temp 1C so that is also a non-issues. Use whatever makes you happy.
