Honestly, you didn't even need to buy paste. The paste that comes with the NH-D15 is excellent. That would be either NT-H1 or NT-H2, which is just about one degree better than H1. From the stock pastes that come with a bottom end Cooler master or Deepcool cooler and the very best liquid metal paste, you are talking an average of about 3-5°C, at most, so it's not a giant issue either way.

But yes, the Kryonaut is very good. Probably just slightly better than the Noctua paste but not enough better that I'd have felt compelled to buy it over what comes with that cooler.
