You do not mention which Athlon x 2 64 processor you have. Are you using the stock heatsink? Replacing the heatsink for something better is no expensive. 775 heatsink

I have the Artic Freezer Pro7 on a Intel i5 2500k & I'm very pleased with it.

The Be-Quiet Dark Rock Advanced gets good reviews it was out of stock when I built my new PC
