    My co-worker and I both just got the H100, hes saying the stock thermal paste/tape is excellent, I'm thinking i may just use some arctic silver, any thoughts?

    if you have it on hand replace it, i have always change my stock thermal paste

    Besides, if it doesnt sit right you have to reapply a new one anyway

    3rd post down says it uses a TIM from Dupont, not Shin Etsu like the H50 or H70. The Dupont company is a major reason that weed is illegal in the US due to lobbying over 80 years ago( hemp is a durable and cheap fiber-- Dupont didn't like that) . Just saying that I don't trust/respect Dupont, so i'd change it as well if you got something else. Yes, I know it's a bad reason to hate a company, but I do
