Which Permatex sealant for valve cover?

Looking at their webpage, there are two options.

1. Permatex® High Temperature Anaerobic Flange Sealant

withstand temperatures to 400°F (204°C), fills gaps up to 0.020” (primed)

2. Permatex® Anaerobic Flange Sealant

for use on rigid machined flanges with less than .015" gap. OEM approved – use where OE’s specify “anaerobic” gasket (cures in the absence of air). Withstands temperatures to 300°F (149°C)

https://www.shopdap.com/permatex-ana...d154103a1.html

On Deutsche Auto Parts, they recommend the second one. But I wonder if the high temp sealant will hold better?

Thank you in advance.

Technically we don't have valve covers, we have cylinder head covers. The only reason it's important to point that out is because unlike valve covers in a normal DOHC setup, the upper bearing caps for the camshafts are integrated into them.

I don't know if I'm being pedantic by pointing this out or not. But to address the question if Deutsche recommends it for this specific application I'm sure it's good.

Thank you for pointing out.
I have been told it should be called as the cam girdle, and opening it up will mess up the cam/ timing?
The reason why I am considering permatex is because it is cheaper and hope it performs better than the OEM green sealant.
