It shouldn't overheat more easily than any other C2Q.

Why do you ask?

Is the Q8300 a good processor? Yes.

Does it overhead too easy? No.

Q8300 has a TDP of 95W, which most do. Something like a Q6700 has 105W while the Q8200S has 65W (for instance).

Welcome to the forums!

The Q8300 is a fine CPU.

As to overheating...
Depends on where you are sticking it and what you are doing with it.
If you are sticking it in a case with no ventilation and heavily overclock it using the stock Hs, yes it will overheat.
If your case case enough airflow and you run it at stock or use a good aftermarket cooler when overclocking it will not overheat.

Sure it's a good little CPU I wouldn't worry about it overheating unless you put the CPU cooler on wrong or have really bad case ventilation.
