Thermal compound is thermal compound unless you are trying to overclock pretty far. Just make sure the heat sink is seated well and make sure the chips dont have a bevel, if any chips are cracked I'd leave them totally alone. Make sure you don't use to much thermal compound because that is generally what makes it go places it shouldnt be. It should just be an extremely thin layer.
