Default Need to cool my processor!

Help please! i need a way to cool my processor a lot! it heats up rediculously quickly, to the point where it is freezing before i can log in to make changes to my system. i really would love a way to do this without buying a new one, as i cant really afford it. I did put a better heatsink in from a spare old computer, and all that was left of the the thermal compound was about a pea sized dried up flakey dot. should i reapply this?

ANY help is greatly apreciated

definately reapply the paste, but i dont think you put the HSF on right, when you reapply it make sure you put the HSF on correctly.

It doesn't take much. Too much can act as an insulator and will do you no good. Usually the size of a rice grain will be fine. Just experiment with what gives you the best results.

Could you spare money for a more powerful fan?

You could try underclocking it to see if it runs any cooler
