The better the cooling you can add to the processor the cooler and better your cpu will be. the 140mm fan is a case fan, yes?
you will need to upgrade your cpu fan and heatsink.

CPUs on 45nm core are overall cooler than their predecessors on Core micro-architecture. However, the temperature different under 100% workload makes only 4-5 degrees. The thing is that Wolfdale processor core is smaller and features higher transistor density within a semiconductor die, which makes it a little harder for the heat flow to dissipate properly. That is why Wolfdale and Conroe heat up almost identically in idle mode. As for the relatively low temperature of AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+, with twice as high TDP as that of Core 2 Duo actually, it can be explained by the not very best location of the on-die thermal sensor that is situated quite far from the hottest spots of the processor’s semiconductor die.

    your money would be better spent on a new heatsink and fan for your cpu. the 140mm case fan should put plenty of air into the case.
    i suggest you look into something like the Scythe Orochi CPU Cooler and stick another 140mm fan on the side of that.

Open computer, take it to gas station and use the air (for tire inflate) to clean the cooler.

Replace Thermal pas on the cpu, gpu. mount everything and check how it works. You can also buy a better cooler to replace the one you have.

My acer aspire 5738 overheating and shutdown while playing games

must dissassemble and clean lint out of fan area, inspect carefully and making certain all passages are clear., I use cutips, alcohol and toothbrush, paintbrushes, fans can usually be taken out by removing the little screws but only once dissassembly is done.
youtube can explain how! take pics for reassembly and go slow and be organised and careful.
also inspect motherboard for water damages and ribbon cables that go back in and tear the gold strips and short things out if not done slowly and precisely.
Look on kijiji or backpage for local repair shops and guys with a good reputation. Google can find you these places but watch out for local scammers.
If you have to get that far it would be a good idea to put some heat sink paste (arctic silver being the best and can be found for 5 to 10 bucks for a shringe like tube of it. use it sparingly and get the old stuff off with alcohol.
be careful if using brushes around water damage parts as they may be near from lifting off the board so be gentle as that repair is near impossible to fix and I say near impossible but I did it (once).
Hope this helps but there is a reason you pay for the repair guy.
Knowledge Rules! East Coast Canada Rocks!!
Take care
There also could be processes running in the background of your computer making it slowdown and work the cpu and memory hard.
Get a process remover and get rid of all those toolbars and other software that gets installed everytime you surf and download.
Don't remove Windows processes or programs,
Read and study before doing it.
hope this helps

My old heat sink and fan have screw in attatchments and the new on has the plastic pop in and 1/4 turns. Help?

Your old heat sink and fan probably works just as as good or better than that stock Intel fan and heat sink. If your computer case does not allow access to the rear of the motherboard you are going to have to remove the motherboard to pull the back plate that was used to attach your old heat sink and fan. To install the Intel fan turn the pins until the screwdriver slot is perpendicular to the fan shroud (the tip of the arrow is furthest out), then push in any 2 opposite sides at the same time into the motherboard. You will here them click in. Repeat for the other 2 pins.

I have problem with my HP 6730s. It is very hot when i`m playing on it. And i have a gane witch is frameing. It is because the laptop is so hot?

Yes it is. The heat build up affects lots of parts in there, the video, hard drive, and of course the processor.

Laptops typically run much hotter than desktops for obvious reasons; there is not much room in there for equipment and fans. You may want to check into a docking tray for your laptop to sit on. Many have up to six fans situated to draw as much heat as possible out of the laptop interior.They aren't very expensive, and do make a difference. Don't play with your laptop in your lap - always play with it on a flat surface so that air can circulate under it.

Upgrading the cpu and heat sink and fan

All the factory fitted CPUs are having such heat sinks as previously u were having.
Check on the backside there will be small plastic covers where screws fit these could be removed by screw driver but u can purchase that heat sink or can use previous heatsink as well if it is working.

Hi i am farooq i have lenovo 3000n100 laptop just new ,i have problum to play games

Marines Shouting is an ancient and venerable game! It sounds like you might try rightclicking on the game icon and use Run As, running it as an older WinXP DirectX game. DirectX comes as part of WinXP, so as long as you are running that OS or later, or Wine and Crossover in Linux, you should be fine. Otherwise you needed to do more planning ahead.

Firefox is a pretty good game in itself, is it not? There is a good typing tutor game plugin which you might enjoy updating for Firefox 3.
