Has worked on quads for me for years. Just apply a dot on the cpu and DONT SPREAD IT. Just attach the heatsink and wiggle it around a bit. If you spread it out, you will get air bubbles in there and get less performance. You defintiely need to do this as 58C is WAY to hot for stock
58C is hot for stock, but not too hot overall wouldn't you say?
