Choosing thermal paste?

I'm still new to owning a pc, and I have a new cpu coming in the mail. I will need some new thermal paste to re-apply the heat sink. Does it matter what kind of paste I get? I'm thinking about just buying this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0087X728K?pf_rd_p=c2945051-950f-485c-b4df-15aac5223b10&pf_rd_r=3H7QV2DBD3GPH4BGWPDN

I would recommend this instead as its non conductive and dose not cure and dry up.  Which makes clean up much nicer when using 99% isoprioyl alcohol

nothing against kryonaut, but my 20 gram tube of MX-4 has been serving me very well too, just as a mention, the smaller tube is quite cheap and good enough:
