I'm in Canada so that's probably it.

Also, no RadioShack here, only 'The Source by Circuit City', which I suppose is just The Source now. I had a look and they don't seem to have any of that, but it's more of a consumer electronics type place (clocks, cheap things that run on electricity, etc.)

Like they already said, use what it came with and if you want upgrade it later. Its not like the CPU you have runs hot or anything.

As far as removing the paste, you should use something like a coffee filter since it has no lint. Qtips can leave strands behind, so I don't use them.

Well actually it runs up to 68 under load (I stopped it there as I didn't want it to melt) but that's with two more cores unlocked. Hence the new heatsink.

And all right, I'll have to look into acquiring a coffee filter, shouldn't be too hard.

Make sure you install the cooler right. I dont think any of my AMD chips, even my 965s, ever ran that hot even under the stock coolers with stock paste.

The reason for that is it's a Phenom II x2 550, but I've unlocked it to a quad core Phenom II x4 B50. The stock heatsink however, is only designed for a dual core and even then barely keeps it below 60 (my room is hot).

Oh, I see. Guessed it would've come with the heatpipe cooler not the Sempron/AII cooler.

Thanks!
Hi!
Indeed, last night I decided to try the stock thermal compound. I have a Cooler Master TX3 and with an expensive "silver" paste, I had too high temps even on idle. The stock compound (according to my short experience) seems to be more easy to spread over the surface of the heatsink (kind of creamy compared to the silver that was like a metallic paint). I did it just over the HS not over the processor. My temps went down some 5 or 10°C, and it was pretty cool for me!

Just remember to clean both, the processor and HS surface with alcohol, some good quality paper towels to remove the excess of old paste, some q-tips for the fine cleaning.

To apply the thermal paste I used an amount similar to 1 1/2 rice grain (it seems to be a common measure) , then spread it all over the HS surface with an old credit card, or some other plastic thing with a good sharped edge. And the end you should have a very thin coat of paste (too thick is not good neither). Then seat the HS over the clean processor and check your temps.

Good luck!
