Well the thermal compound itsn't your problem, the stock cooler is. Get an aftermarket cooler and your temps will go down.

It will give you a noticable cooler CPU, so i would say go for it! It's anice and widely used cooler. Don't forget that in that case you do need thermal compound (altough i believe that is included with the cooler) and you need to clean the CPU with some rubbing alcohol and a cloth before you apply the new thermal compound and heatsink.

Yes it will fit it's not that big of a cooler. I always go with Arctic MX-4.
