Hi all im wanting to upgrade a pc that was built for me by a friend a while ago. It performs well as it is but im wanting more. Im new to computer hardware and this is my first 'gaming pc' It currently contains...

CPU: Intel pentium G3220 dual core MOBO: MSI military class 4 H81M-P33 GPU: Asus Geforce GTX 650 Ti RAM: Crucial Ballistix 8GB PSU: CIC 700UB

I am first thinking of buying a Intel Core i5 4690K. The cores reached 60'C in a stress test and the GPU 79'C (without OC as I cranked it up abit and it hit 88'C before I turned it down) so I opened it up for the first time today and seen that it had only one case fan on the front sucking air in. I moved it to the side blowing air out and the CPU went down 2 while the GPU went down 9 so im going to order 3 more fans 1 more on the side, front and back.

Other then that im pretty stuck. As I said im new to this so any help and advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
