Its somewhat hot, you should get some thermal compound if you haven't already, maybe an aftermarket HSF. P4s run hot naturally, but I'd be uneasy with that temp. They're fine as long as you don't overclock it though.

You're supposed to change the voltage when your processor fails to run (indicating not enough energy). Just increasing the voltage won't make the processor run faster, it just gives it more potential.

Note: Increasing the voltage increases temps.

er... 55c is quite hot actually. I got a 25% overclock out of my processor and it is under 40c with fan cooling. How are your case fans set up? Could be bad airflow creating hot air pockets.

Your processor is a A64, P4s tend to run hotter.

Really? I heard it was just the opposite and P4s are actually cooler than A64s.
