Is the heatsink the source of all my woes or could it be something else?

Also, my cpu isn't going to melt down is it? 86 degrees celsius is pretty darn hot....

yea pretty much unless you want a fried processor.

But anyways you could be gaming soon if you get a decent HSF for around $20-$30. Just do some research.

If its a case temp of 86C it dosn't mean that the heat came from the cpu. My HD used to heat up and cause a high case temp also then I got a cooler for it, but this might not be your problem either. What case do you have?

where are you getting these temps from? from the CPU or sensors on the mobo? it is most likely yor CPU that is causing all this heat, because its a P4, im not against them, but they do run damn hot, especially the prescott core.

Are you sure that its reading temps in Celcius? That equates to 185 degrees. Im sure your case readings are in fahrenheit not celcius. I have an aspire xdreamer with a temp monitor and it usually stays at around 78-83F.
