How are you case fans laid out? If there isn't proper air flow your quad core and gfx card will act more like a heater.

I haven't used the quads but i know they run hotter than the C2D. I would recommend upgrading your heat-sink first. In my personal opinion I think the stock coolers are garbage and there's no way they can keep your quad core cool.

Having a nice clean HSF before reapplication of paste is important as well only using a grain of rice for the amt.

Because your chip is @ stock, i'd do 2 things: Do the basics.

1. Make sure there is good contact and pressue on the CPU to begin with. and of course check what your idle temps are in Bios.

Try getting a good hsf. That should drop it alot. My stock hsf was horrible.

Ehh for a quad on stock, they arent bad @ all actually if hes running it at stock.

Hell you can still get easy 300-400mhz with the stock on stock volts.

Front - In (should go across the Hard Drives)
Side - In (on to the board)
Back - Out (Should suck heat off the CPU)

Remember the Exhaust should be equal to the Intake or you just push a lot of air into the case and don't get good flow. Also for that quad core I'd say grab a Tuniq Tower. They get friggin silly-hot on stock cooling.
