So I have a tube of Arctic Silver 5 sitting in my closet. I plan on replacing the stock thermal paste that came with my heat sink (Corsair H115i Platinum) and maybe the one in my GPU (XFX AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT). This requires me to take some of my PC apart ,unplugging tons of cords and moving it to my other room which requires some work. Is it worth the hassle? Or just keep the stock on? My processor is a i9-9900k.

Thanks guys :)

Unless you experience excessive heat, there's no point - especially to take the GPU apart as it will void the warranty.
Keep that paste somewhere, it may come in handy in a year or two. They don't go bad.
