Cane Creek SCR-3 brake pad question

I want to upgrade the brake pads on my '07 Trek 1500 and they have the Cane Creek SCR3's on them w/ the stock pads at the moment. I noticed the stock pads are cartridge style and am wondering which pads should I buy? I was looking at the Kool Stop Salmon pads and I have no idea about the compatibility with the brake system. It seems the best option would be to find a replacement pad to fit in the Cane Creek holder but not sure which pad to buy (if any?) to be compatible with the Crane Creek holders. They list ...

- Shimano DuraAce / Ultegra
- Campagnolo 2k
- Campagnolo pre-2k
- V-brake insert

as the inserts they sell. Which one should I buy? Or do I have to ditch the holders and get something like the Supra 2 or Thinlines?

Shimano DA/Ultegra compatible. Did the swap myself last week. What a major difference even using the cheapest pads I could find on eBay (4 sets for $15 including S+H).
