Yeah, it's non-conductive and non-capacitive, so you should be just fine.
Don't put it on so thick though, because much like your hsf goop, thinner performs better to a point (too thin gives adhesion weakness).

If It's Really the Aluminum

If you're talking about the Arctic Aluminum ceramic-based epoxy, you could be okay.

If it was the older Arctic Silver epoxy, you'd be screwed.

Man, I would never get sloppy with Arctic Silver epoxy on a vid card. . ..

. . . . never again, anyway. :p
