I used AS5 on my V8. Put a little bit on my CPU, spread it with a piece of plastic, and put the cooler on it, done.
Why do you think the V8 paste is terrible ? I tested both and they performed the same. Actually the V8 paste spread a little easier too. I did let the AS5 cure for 200 hrs before passing real judgment too.
Perhaps the V8 comes with different thermal paste from time to time ? mine was gray and came gushing out the tube.
