Hi, I also have just received the H150i Pro and want to use it on my i9 9900k for my new PC build. I bought the Kryonaut Thermal Grizzly paste with the CPU order not realising that the H150i Pro would come with pre-applied paste. I was wondering if I should keep the pre applies paste and also apply a dot of the Kryonaut paste in addition to the pre-applies paste? I wonder if there are chemical compatibility issues etc?

I wouldn't use both mixed.

I have the H115i RGB Platinum cooler and replaced the pre-applied paste with Kryonaut with great result. The pre-applied paste was very easy to remove using 99% alcohol.

Don't mix pastes. It could even cause the thermal conductivity to worsen or lead to other unwanted effects, depening on the composure of each compound.

Either go with the pre-applied paste or clean it off and use the Kryonaut they should both be fine. Since you already have the Kryonaut, go with that, it should perform better. I'm using it myself as well.
