    Gets the work done. I wouldn't worry unless you're going for a big overclock.

    4.6Ghz would need better paste, but that depends on what volts you are running on.

    a better paste doesnt mean a better OC, but it means a lower load temp when OCed.
    it just ensures quick transfer.
    technically the heat passing through the layer of paste much be higher than the heat dissipative ability of the cooler for optimum performance :)

    PSU indeed. mobo may not be able to handle it.
