For 24/7 use, keep hottest core at no more than 75C.

J/K April Fools! Today is probably not the best day to ask questions, here nor anywhere else LOL
LoL anyways.

Thanks for all responses. Looks like I am going to buy a new cooler and TIM. It still seems odd that I cannot use an Intel Q8400 under very normal circumstances (no OC, no voltage tweaks, good ventilation) with its stock cooler. I wonder if Intel stock coolers were that bad how was I able run my e4400 with %40 OC.

@ blooder11181: Changed the cpuz attachment with the new one.

Forgot to mention one more thing which makes me believe this is not just a bad stock cooler issue. Interestingly enough, I also observed hangs. For example even if the temp is 50 C (which is quite enough for a cpu perform well) while I am listening to music, scrolling on a web page makes the music crackling and slows it down as if the pitch falls.

Honestly I wouldn't OC any chip on a stock cooler. Especially a quad.

Did a bit search and here are the coolers that fit my price range and are available here (in Turkey):

XIGMATEK HDT-S963 - LGA775/1156 & AMD AM2
XIGMATEK LOKI SD963 - LGA775/1156/1366 & AM2/AM2+/AM3
XIGMATEK RED SCORPION S1283 - LGA775 & AM2
Cooler Master Hyper TX3 - LGA 775/1156 & AM2 / AM3
Sunbeam Core-Contact Freezer 92mm - LGA775 & AM2

I have intentionally wrote the cpu compatiblity in case of any future change of my cpu. I already know there are way better coolers around, however they are not either available here or much pricey (CM Hyper 212 plus is twice as expensive as the ones I wrote above for example). So if you were to choose one of these which one would you choose?

I wanted to buy a 120 mm Xigmatek Gaia but my case is too small for it, so I had to go for a 92 mm XIGMATEK LOKI SD963. Just bought one with an extra 120 mm Xigmatek XLF-F1253 case fan to place in front of the case. I hope they will work well enough to cool my cpu. Thanks all.

Good news Installed XIGMATEK LOKI SD963 (added one more fan) and Xigmatek XLF-F1253. What a drastic change! Not in idle maybe but my load temps are so nice now. Idle is down by 6-7 C (in 30s now), but load (here I mean after playing games for an hour-Crysis 2, Bulletstorm and NFS Shift 2) max 53 C compared to my old 73 C. I tried it with prime95 only for 25 minutes and max was below 60. I will try prime95, Otrhos , maybe for longer hours. Thanks all.
