I am having problems with the stock e8400 cooler Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P I can get it to fit flush this causing temperatures to be 5-10c higher than my ASUS p5q pro. I think that I have to remove my motherboard and install the fan from outside the case (Please advice me if this would work) on my e8400 at stock 3.0ghz
I used to get from 21-29c idle with the Asus now it is 28-33c and load used to be like around 50c now it is around 60c

The core temp idles at 56-59c (Si Sandra) what is the real measure of CPU temp and could the temp from Asus ProbeII and Gigabyte Easy 6 be misleading

Can I go lower than 21c with a Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus with the e8400 @ 3.0ghz
I have a dead HIS 4870 512mb considering getting a GTX 470 and I thing I might need to overclock to reduce bottlenecking is this a sensible decision
Also is Overclocking to 3.4 or 3.6 going to carry my temp over 30c with the coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus

YES, adding an aftermarket cooler would be very beneficial. Idle temps are not really a concern, load temps are. You should see a substantial drop at load with something like the 212+ to warrant the $30 cost.

Coretemp or Realtemp for monitoring your temps will work.

COOLER MASTER Hyper N 520 vs COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus which is better?
Which on will give me better load temps?
