I just got a new AMD Athlon x4 750k and didn't have any new thermal paste and I was really anxious to get it in and start using it. But now, this post I saw said I basically fried some cores and put its life down to half. Did I really? I used it and it's Temps at idle were in the 20s and stayed there. Playing Overwatch was barely different. Help would be appreciated.

Obviously no one advises using old paste. However, on some of my earlier rigs I did just that and there was no initial difference in temps. :)
