if you have an intel proc

If you have an intel proc then any intel cooler will mate with your board. The quad core are socket LGA 775 and you can get any cooler that fits that config, and there are quite a few. However, make sure you check clearances around it, because some CPU fans are huge! I would also make sure your not overclocking and you have case fans. Also, if you can adjust these case fans make sure you have them in a good airflow configuration. (front to back ect..) Also decide if you want positive or negative box pressure. If there is no fresh air coming in or is stagnant you can have increased internal temps like you state.

How are you determining it's overheating ?

What are the temps ?

How many case fans are you running ?

Have you cleaned out the dust from the CPU HS FAN ?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
