Thresh top?

I have played him a couple of times top now. Won 4 times and kinda drawed the fifth against yorick. Anyone think he would be decent to keep playing top. I'm not sure about his prowess as a top champ. Him getting farmed gives you pretty much a super super in teamfights.

My build for him was:
Ionian Boots
Liandry's Torment
Sunfire cape
Abyss Scepter
the frozen gauntlet thingy or Frozen heart
(at start I rushed a Philo stone for assist in gold income)

Masteries:9/21/0(for magic pen and general tankiness)

Anyone tips for improving him being useful or anything else?

Thresh is better AD in top lane in my opinion. His auto attack harass is really powerful vs. most AD bruisers. Attack damage makes his passive Q hit like a truck. It's so powerful in fact that once you have a bloodthirster most people will back off immediately after the first hit. It's that good! He should be built tanky though. A glass cannon Thresh will always fail regardless of what role he's playing.

In fact there's a great guide here http://www.lolking.net/guides/71183 for AD Thresh or if you want to try him AP top you can have a go at this one here http://www.lolking.net/guides/79791

I personally think his cooldowns are too long and his magical damage(Minus his ultimate) to be too low to warrant going full AP though. You can't depend on Thresh being a consistent source of magic damage like you could Elise or Swain in top lane.
