Use the supplied TC it will out perform the AS by a few(2~3) degrees.

I haven't seen enough information about Chill FACTOR 2 to make an educated decision. The few things I have read put it just ahead of AS.

I used the Noctua NT-H1 compound with my NH-D14. Seems to be near the top in terms of TC's from what I've read. I would give the Noctua TC a shot.

I used the Artic Silver5 with the directions from there site and I tried the pea and the BB and the line method and went back to the NT-H1 with just a BB sized dot in the center of my CPU and turned the NH-D14 a 1/8-1/4 turn side to side while holding down and without releasing the presure from the D14 tigheted the screws down.
My temps are 4-6c better with the NT-H1
Seems too me that the AS5 is to thin for the NH-D14

This chart shows off the best and worse. Skineelabs is pretty thorough when testing.

But it also leaves out quite a few TIMs.

Well I think MX-4 is the way to go - but if you want a little more budget compound I would go for the MX-2 - no doubt about that
