Default Socket 775

I know the topic of this cooling is been brought up a lot. I recently had a computer being cooled with a tornado fan. And it worked and I had no problems other than the annoying sound.

So I switched to just a normal fan. And the temp idle went from 52-55 range to the 57-60 range.

SO my question is where can I find a program to test my comp under stress. AND what are bad temps. I realize that they can be rather high with 775 3.2 CPU's but I dont want my chip to die unnecesarraly soon.

Sometimes I wonder if I\'m enough a nerd to do this...

Intel P4 3.6 Intel LGA775 board.
Nvidia BFG 6800 GT OC PCI-e.
Ultra 600W power supply unit.
2 80 gig Maxtor (raid0) 160 gig (bulk)
OCZ 2048MB 4200 DDR2 (2 x1024MB)
ThermalTake. Tornado primary.
19\" LG LCD
