    Yeah, the stock HS is good, and is what I use.

    Take the thermal pad off and put thermal paste though.

    Yup, and I and almost everyone else will recommend Arctic Silver 5 for that

    Ya but you see I'll probably be using the thermal pad for a while...

    how do you even take off the thermal pad?

    It will still be ok with the thermal pad so you can leave it.

    But it's better with Arctic silver (a few degrees). You can remove it with your fingernail and then some rubbing alcohol.

    scrape it with ur finger nail to get the huge amounts off, and then use rubbing alcohol or lighter fluid (lighter fluid works really good) to remove the little amounts that are left.

    it is a lot easier to remove the thermal pad before it has been used becuase it will after be sticky and also has to be removed from the processor.
