Default Tuniq Tower and Thermal Paste

I see in the package contents that the Tuniq Towere comes with Thermal Paste. If I buy one, do I need to buy more thermal paste or does it come with enough?

Don't use the thermal paste included with any aftermarket HSF, except the AF7 Pro. When you do buy a tube of AS5 or MX-1, it's enough for several computer builds.

It's WAY more than enough, I had to use it because I had no other thermal paste atm. You only need to apply a small amount, about the size of a grain of rice.

Thanks. I didn't know that the paste they ship with the $65 item wasn't good enough for the product. That really stinks.
