i have a athlon II x4 630 that i bought used and thought i would overclock, but when i installed it it shows about 70c under load. its stock cooler is the same as sempron(my old cpu) and i have tried both and still overheating. i bought some good thermal paste and i have appplyed it three times but every time overheating. i cleaned everything with alkohol really good but still overheat. there must be something wrong somewhere it just cant be 70c with original clock and cooler. i even reset whole bios and cool n' quiet on but still overheat. do you thiink i couold overclock with a new cooler, or is there something wrong with the prosessor when its so hot, considering i bought it used? i know theres no dust and the case is good because my old prosessor was overclocked from 2.8 to 3.5 with stock cooler and still good temps.
