Why do you need some extra paste? the one bundled with the Silver Arrow is excellent. If it's just to have more paste, then leave AS5 alone. Curing time is so 2009.

Looks good to me.. if I had to choose an air cpu cooler I'd probably go with the Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro/Advanced. If I was overclocking I would go with a liquid cooling system. Something simple like the Corsair H80 or H100. That's just my opinion. Take it with a grain of salt.
