Valve Cover/Oil Pan Sealant

Hi Porsche people, I'm looking for opinions on what sealant to use in closing up the valve cover and oil pan. I understand Porsche recommends Drei-bond 1209 or Loctite 5900. In your experiences, which works the best? Are there any alternatives that work better?

Thanks an advance!

Loctite 5900. Less is more than sufficient.

Drei-bond is all you'll find at my facility.
