I would go with the AS5. I rarely use the thermal paste that comes with my coolers. If you happen to see some shin etsu while shopping grab that instead of the AS5.

AS5 is not the best choice to use on a Hyper 212+ since it needs to be replaced over time. I've been there, done that with my Hyper 212+ and its a major PITA to remove AS5 from its slotted base. The supplied TIM is adequate, or use something like AC MX-2 or MX-4 which lasts a long time.
