I would get some and use it instead of what comes on the cooler. Get TX-2.

RMA it as incompatible. You will take a 15% hit, but you will be able to use the rest against a new CPU.

Go with either of these and try unlocking them:

Newegg.com - AMD Athlon II X3 445 Rana 3.1GHz 3 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Desktop Processor ADX445WFGMBOX

Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition Callisto 3.2GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 80W Dual-Core Desktop Processor - C3 Revision HDZ555WFGMBOX

What do you think of this? Newegg.com - AMD Athlon II X4 630 Propus 2.8GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Processor ADX630WFGIBOX

Also, I bought the cooler you recommended and it is a little to big for my case, I will have to use the one that comes with this cpu

The x4 630 is a good CPU. Also, RMA the cooler, too. I ordered a Core Contact when I rebuilt my computer and it was too tall for my case so I had to return it as incompatible. I now have one of these:
Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 64 Pro 92mm Ceramic CPU Cooler
