I its top temp, using 100% of the cpu, it hit 54. I'm not sure if that's "dangerous" but I figure buying a new heatsink wouldn't any of them work specifically well with p4s?

Really quick way? in a single core, running Prime to compute a list of primes from 0 to 20000000 will do it. Mobius Center :: Darkness and Light - Mobius MachOne Enterprises

SuperPi, Orthos and Prime95 are also good stress testers, but only Orthos is dual-threaded.

54 isn't too bad for a full load, so I guess you're ok. If you're still looking for a good aftermarket cooler though, you can pick up a mid-range Zalman or Thermalight. The Thermalight passive coolers are actually pretty effective, and you can hook up a small fan for some easy cooling.
