That should work. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't ceramique or something. (ive seen it.)
Be sue to apply even pressure to the heatsink so its evenly spread.

52 is full load under prime95?
That isn't as bad but its not that great either. Let it burn in and it might get a little better. If not, you might need to check your cpu and cooling base for flattness, and potentially lap one if they arent flat.

Phenom I's are pretty hot, so an aftermarket cooler would be worth it.

EDIT: If you lap/pressure mod a TRUE, it will be a lot better than a V8.
