It's OK for testing when you built your computer (for example to make sure that everything works), but after that you must buy the proper cooler for the Q8400 because the Q8400 has higher TDP than the e7500 (95W vs 65W).

You should check again,it doesn't seem that your motherboard is compatible with a Quad CPU.

Do you mean the E8400 (not Q8400 as you mentioned)?
it is an q8400, so it isnt compatible? the motherboard has a lga 775 slot and the p35/g33/g31 chipset
