hm,, right, are u using ur own cooler? or that came with CPU?

as I have still this 3000+ (333 Bus) AMD in my use, and its cooler is made of copper (fins as well)

if u r using thermal paste (then first remove the previous with isopropyl alcohol.

then apply about half grain of rice (assuming u r using artic silver, whicn is a well recommended),

do not apply more than that, as told u earlier, that the surfacrs are never always perfecrly flat, so to fill in this gap, these thermal iinterfaces are used to avoid blank spaces.

many new mobo's have bios update apps, to avoid the hassle of running through dos. I have an intel D865PERL and ran a program from intel to update, and it was done in a minute, with no problems.
