Thermal Paste Solution

I am planning on getting the Corsair H105 liquid CPU cooler, and it comes with thermal paste. Should I invest a few more bucks for another thermal paste or just use the ones that come with the H105 pre applied?

Speaking as someone who has had experience with Corsair thermal paste, definitely get some Arctic Silver. The paste is not very pasty, and even after several high stress tests and a few months of use, there was barely any residue on my CPU. I took the old stuff off, and replaced it with some Arctic Silver, and 10*C improvements.
