    Have you checked for dust accumulation?

    Is this a branded or custom build?

    Go to the support page for your motherboard;
    Download and install the asus suite. Once done, monitor your temps with the asus program ie PPSU or power/performance. Post your temps here. Do this twice. Once under a normal load and once while running prime95 or IBT [intel burn test]
    If you are using the stock intel cooler, those are fine for normal use however for gaming, you need a quality cooler like a coolermaster 212 or other performance cooler.

    One other item. You list a 400W pw supply. The minimum pw supply for your video card is 400W. While you can get by doing this as long as you have a high end pw supply ie seasonic or other high end unit. If you have a corsair cx, cxm, or vs unit, you are asking for problems. IMO you never want to build a system with bare minimum specs.
