Since the H100 doesn't come with any extra thermal paste and I recently had to RMA my old cpu for a new one, I was wondering, what's a good compound to use with this cooler? I've seen some people recommend shin-etsu or IC7. Is there anything better than those? Also, which shin-etsu should I be looking at? There are like a handful of different types, and I'm not sure which one of them is the better one.

Thanks for the suggestions!

I've used AS5 myself on a few of my other PCs, but I've heard that these newer compounds pretty much outdo it now, especially in regards to the break-in period. I've been looking at the MX-4 and IX, and they both look pretty good. It seems the IX is highly recommended, although I've seen people say that you should only use it if your mobo is setup horizontally so that it doesn't drip. Is that true?
