One more question...I see it comes with a sachet of thermal paste, do you reckon it's decent enough or should I fork out for Arctic MX-4 instead?

Thanks Aretak, not looking to overclock initially but possibly further down the line. It's noticeably quieter then though? That's big plus of it is as trying to build an ultra silent rig.
Depends on whether you're overclocking or not. This should allow you to push the 1700 further if you are, but it should be quieter at least either way.
How much better is this than the stock AMD Wraith Spire 95w cooler that comes with the Ryzen 7 1700? I've ordered this (because HUKD makes you do impulsive things! (shock) Damn you HKUD! ) but debating whether it was unnecessary, and the stock cooler is good enough?
