Or chose the 90 minute mud if you're a slow mudder like me.
Are you using the hot mud to hasten the installation or to have stronger mud bonds in the corners? Or both? If the former, that's a viable method if you want to do more than just one coat in a day. If the latter, there is some merit to that even though in my estimation when drywall cracks, it does so in different places (like around doors or windows) and usually not in the corners. It's more important to use good corner tape. Also, if you're building up a lot of mud, the hot mud can help as it doesn't shrink as much as the compound. But then, I hope you don't have to do much build-up. That's a pain to work with. The less, the better.

I don't envy you. Drywall work SUCKS.
