Twisted Use stock AIO paste or Arctic Silver 5?

I'm leaning towards cleaning off the thermal paste on the corsair H115i RGB Platinum and applying my own Arctic Silver 5 to the CPU instead.

What are your thoughts on this? It's for a 9900k

Probably not much difference between those two. There are lots of TIM comparisons floating around out there, but the differences are always slight from top to bottom. Pick something easy to work with and that is non-conductive. Extra viscous materials make like harder, although these days the die is so small you can simply drop the pea/line and smoosh.
