Which thermal paste to use for Corsair H100i v2

I've bought a new water cooling AIO kit, the Corsair H100i v2. How much difference is between the Corsair thermal paste and the grizzly kryonaut? Do you recommend me to use the grizzly thermal paste? Thanks.

Edit: I have the 6700k and planned to OC to 4.5Ghz

  1. I like MX4 and Gelid Extreme.

  2. What processor are you planning to cool? Are you going for some hefty OCs?
    Generally speaking, just try to use the stock paste and see how it goes. If its not up to your standards, change it out. I wouldnt spend that much on a paste, when Arctic MX-4 is still a great, cheap paste to use.

    Yeah, Arctic MX-4 is better than the stock paste, but most thermal pastes will perform within a few C between eachother.
