Question regarding the Thermal-Grizzly Kryonaut

Hi, I recently bought this thermal paste to replace the stock paste which I have on my 6600k and my video card (Gigabyte GeForce GTX 980 Ti XTREME Gaming).

The doubt which I'm having is I don't know how my heatsink is gonna react to the paste since it's very enthusiast grade and some sources say to not to apply it on Copper based heatsinks. (I'm an idiot for researching this after I bought the paste). I own a Phanteks PH-TC12DX CPU Cooler. Same question can be asked for my GPU heatsink.

Sorry for my English, it is not my first language.Thank you for your time.

    some sources say don't use it on copper? what does the package say?
    it mentions aluminum bases, but that's for their liquid metal stuff. where did you see that it's not for copper?

  2. I think you're thinking of the liquid metal like hwlr77 said. I just used this to complete a build a couple weeks ago with a copper heatsink and I didn't see anything like that mentioned in the kryonaut instructions.
