As far as thermal paste goes, well, I'm using what came on the H50.
I will experiment with some AS5 as well.

Dunno if you do ghetto, but an old 120mm fan with centre cut out does ok as shroud, and if screws are hard to source, older mobo standoffs use the same thread. Just stack them, and drill out the mount holes in the shroud to clear the OD of the standoffs.....get the height right mixing standoff heights and screw the originals into the top of the stack.. Rough?
Also to help cooling, a 120mm fan can be put into 3 of the 5.25 drive bays - can be mounted on back edge of a gutted shortened shell of a cd drive, and used as inlet or exhaust depending which way you went with the H50.
Just for those with limited resources...
