Stock compound is Shin-Etsu and better than AS5.

If you had a bad mount, you might get better performance compared to now, but all else being equal Shin-Etsu performs better than AS5.

With the bugged thermal sensors Thubans have, your temps really aren't that great.

I was very underwhelmed I had and sold my H50 for real water. 125-130W CPUs plus Corsair Hydro=unremarkable temps, IMHO. Though things are better now that prices have dropped to more reasonable levels given the performance.

I would *strongly* advise against this. You will warp your motherboard. Any waterbolock does not need to be that tight. Past just snug, all you're doing is distorting the plane of the motherboard.
