Need Advice to Cool my CPU. Its always High no matter how effectively i use

Firstly here is my Config

Intel Pentium Dual core 3 GHZ
300 Watt PSU
2 GB DDR3 Ram 1333
Gigabyte G41M COMBO Mother board
2 TB internal HD
Sapphire AMD ATI Radeon HD 6670 1 GB Graphics card

The CPU usage is always high.
Can i use Deepcool Gamma archer for this mother board ? Would it support to cool it down?
Is it because i use a outdated CPU ? I'm planning to play games like splinter cell conviction and blacklist and Fifa 15. What should i be doing here ? Thanks for your help in advance !
:??:

  1. It's not really the fact that you have an outdated CPU, if you had a brand new one it would work a lot better. It's rather that used CPUs heat more. Yes that cooler does support your mobo (lga775).
    Advices: 1# Use the mx-4 thermal compound, place only a bit of it, if you use too much it can no longer conduct heat. #2 Never save on coolers, it's better to buy one with a removable fan.

    "Used cpu's heat more"? You can' be serious. Every cpu is "used" the minute you turn on the computer. For your information every heatsink made has a "removable" fan. Do you think it is part of the heatsink itself?:ange:
  3. By "used" I mean old CPUs that have been used for a long time... Isn't it obvious? For example an FX 8350 is a very old CPU, but the performance of a new one are "godlike" compared to the same chip that was bought when it only appeared. By "removable" I meant replaceable with any standard 120 or 140 mm fan...

    So if I place too much thermal compound, is it bad ? even if I spread it evenly ? And I also get a lot of blue screen errors. Does that happen because of CPU over heating or a hardware issue ?
    I just had my OS changed to windows 10 if that makes any difference. But still windows crashes.
  5. Well, yes, too much thermal compound is bad because it can't conduct heat well. If you put just a tiny bit of it, it will spread over the processor under pressure. While windows 10 will increase user experience, it will only speed up some programs (especially those that use DX 11 and DX 12).

    Gotcha. Will make sure put a tiny bit. Thank you :)
