    I am not sure your CPU is the problem might be the video card. Can you borrow a better one to test with?
    With stock cooler overclocking will be pretty limited.
    Do you mean the case has one intake side fan and a rear exhust fan?

    Please attach a CPU-Z text report (CPU-Z -> About tab -> Save Report (.TXT))

    bf2 is probably going to be hard on a 9400gt,bf3 would be worse but.
    fortunately you can overclock your gx card and cpu seperately

    For the gx card overclock, try msi afterburner,it works with most nvidia gx cards and is the more modern version of rivatuner.the latest non beta version is ver 2.1 I think.

    The q8200 isnt that easy to overclock because of its low multiplier but 3.0 ghz in your ddr3 system should be doable as long as the memory is kept at a reasonable speed.

    Your 9400gt might be the main limiting factor but some settings I had(yes its a 45 board and ddr2 ) might be of use
