Aluminum and copper connection - thermal paste?

CPUs and Overclocking - AnandTech Forums - forums.anandtech.com
Hello, I'll be making a custom passive CPU cooler soon, and this will require me to connect two flat surfaces, an aluminum and copper one. Do I use standard CPU thermal paste between aluminum and copper? Or should I use something specific for best thermal conductivity between those metals?
