Use either some MX-2, MX-3 or MX-4. They will all perform the same, you won't notice a difference.

Of course you can. The difference between thermal pastes is 1C at the very most in most cases, there are so many variables to consider. You're really not going to notice any difference unless you do extensive testing to within .1C.
