I'd use pigeon crap as thermal paste. Jk lol. Arctic Silver5 it is.

 

But is the 4790 a non-K version or do you mean 4790K? If non-K, why H60 cooler?

Hmmm, I haven't used any of those but I wouldn't imagine any one of them is much better than the other.  I say that because I haven't heard good or bad things about any of them though, but I have heard of them all.

I personally use Artic Silver, however most thermal pastes when applied correctly are within a few degrees of one another. Don't stress about making the right choice because it will almost always be impossible to notice.

I see. Then I guess we got almost the same lol. When I was about to finish my list for PC parts, I almost chosed the Noctua NH-ND-14, just to cool the fucking 4770 hahaha. But others have helped and got the Hyper 412S, much cheaper and it has been working nicely since I got it back in 2014.

 

Brasil seems to have the PC parts very expensive or other parts not available, is that true?

Yes, for example a GTX 1070 is around $600 dollars, thats due to our taxes, almost 40% of the price is taxes
