It won't work as good as the newer block, it should still be much better than air though. That said, if you can get your hands on an Apogee XT, Heatkiller 3.0, or an EK supreme HF, I advise you to do so.

"Shinyness" doesn't help the cooling performance, but clean it with some rubbing alcohol to make sure there isn't any gunk on it.

If you want to restore the shine for aesthetic reasons.... coat it in ketchup for 5 mins. The vinegear will clean it up nice.

The block will work fine and should not affect temps by more than ?3C?

Honestly, they are all so close, if I were you I would just get the one that you think looks best.
