Is the Pre-applied Thermal Paste H100i good?

Hello, I purchased a Corsair H100i cooler for my CPU as I have heard great things about them but what I was wondering is if the pre-applied thermal paste is adequate. I really would rather not replace the thermal paste if I do not have to but if it is poor quality or yields temperatures that are not ideal then I will replace it. I have heard good things about arctic sliver but I do not know much about thermal paste.

Thanks!

Yeah it's fine. Most people over exaggerate the difference between thermal pastes. It won't be more than a degree or 2 max.
