I guess a higher density compound is preffered as the heatsink contacts the CPU die directly and probably isn't as tight as it could be with IHS.
Hmm, interesting thought... What would you recommend?
MX-4 is a higher density one, so you should look for something similar. I use Arctic MX-2 and SPC PT-2, PT-2 is higher density but probably not any better than MX-4 and available only in Poland.
Also, when it comes to MorphOS hw I only repasted my Powerbooks with PT-2, not tight at all and needed quite a lot of the paste, esp. for GPU. So, my guess for Powermac G5 is just a guess :).
