Intel core 2 quad q8300 EXTREME TEMPS

Hi these is my system:
CPU: ntel core 2 quad q8300 2.5 ghz (no OC)
Board: intel dg31pr
GPU: zotac gts 250 1 gb
HDD: seagate barracuda 7200.9 160 gb
RAM: 1x2gb transcend ddr2 667 mhz+1x2gb dynate ddr2 667 mhz
DVD: 2xdvd writers
PSU: vip power silent 2.2 500w
Case: micro atx type
coolers: all stock +1x80mm atx fan

question:
i downloaded speedfan 4.4 and then found in idle my
gpu temparatures exceeds 58 degrees
my system temp exceeeds 70 degrees
cpu exceeds 60 degrees
aux always stays at 116 never changes and
all the core temp stays between 55 to 60 degrees

first of all i thought it was showing wrong temperatures
then i downloaded core temp and hwmonitor and those also showed the same temps

as my room temp exceeds 35 degrees it is quite natural that my system catches heat but after turning on my ac too its shows me temperatures till 50 degrees

thus after all all this i tried playing crysis for about 15 min (it lags a little bit) i exited the game and found that speed fan was showing extreme temps.
my gpu was at 67 deg
CPU AT 93 DEG
system at 82 deg
aux never changes stays same at 116 deg
and the core temps were above 85 deg
the cpu fan was runnig at 1900 rpms.

is it happening due to the stock cpu cooler ??
i didnt applied thermal paste on the cooler while installing it.
if an upgrade is necessary which one is recommended??
or is it due to the microatx cabinet??
if i need to upgrade it how is the cooler master cm 690??

every answer is appreciated

First off....alwys, always apply a very thin film of thermal grease to the cooler and Proc. This grease is designed to fill in the microscopic grooves and holes in the material. Do not glob it on thick, it doesn't work that way.
Case design has something to do with cooling but you are experiencing higher than normal stock temps, the more fans the better, you want some pushing air in the front and pulling it out the back, a good flow across all the hardware is essential. Installing a good processor cooler may require you to remove the motherboard so you can get to the back of the board to mount the cooler retainer plate, but there are other coolers that do not require this. If it were up to me, I would deffinately take the time and remove the motherboard and do this right. You need to get those temps down. I personally like this one....

Not too expensive and does a great job for the LGA775 socket.

For cases...I always use HAF932s...they have everything that is needed and are tool less.

Depends on the socket type.. Socket 423 and 478 do not support core duo or quad core processor types. However, if you have LGA 775 (aka socket T) your motherboard will support the following:
Intel Pentium 4 (2.60 - 3.80 GHz)
Intel Celeron D (2.53 - 3.60 GHz )
Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Intel Pentium D (2.66 - 3.60 GHz)
Pentium Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Pentium Dual-Core (1.40 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Duo (1.60 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Extreme (2.66 - 3.20 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Quad (2.33 - 3.00 GHz)
Intel Xeon (1.86-3.40 GHz)
Intel Celeron (1.60 - 2.40 GHz)

Gts 250 and psu problems


The dual 6 pin, I believe, is used so you can take power from the power supply and pass the connection back where it was taken from with a jumper. The card should need only one connection for power (But it IS needed)
Power supply is vital for a computer. From your description I would not get less than 600watt. The power supply should be rated at least 125% of what you need worst case.

Which gpu is better?


The video card is a joke, strictly for office use. Get a GTS 250 , it's an very upgraded form of 9600GT. 8800GT is far too old and weak for newer games.

Need a prossesor for motherboard


You can also use any other intel 775 socket processor as well. The dual cores are at the top of the list for performance that are compatible with that board, but if you're looking for a cheaper solution, I have that board with a 3GHz pentium 4 and it runs great. Here's a list of all the processors you can use.
Intel Pentium 4 (2.66 - 3.80 GHz)
Intel Celeron D (2.53 - 3.60 GHz )
Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition
(3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Intel Pentium D (2.66 - 3.60 GHz)
Intel Pentium Extreme Edition
(3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Pentium Dual-Core (1.40 - 2.80 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Duo (1.60 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Extreme (2.66 - 3.20 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Quad (2.33 - 3.00 GHz)
Intel Xeon (1.86-3.40 GHz)
Intel 'Core' Celeron (1.60 - 2.40 GHz)

Hi!

Thats not easy to tell....its all about money. But i will recomend you 3 verry good cpu:s that is not to expensive and worth the money.

1: Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 3,0GHz Box
2: Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3,16GHz Box
3: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 2,5GHz Box

All of them are boxed, that means that you dont need to buy a separate fan

Good luck!
