Default CPU running pretty hot

Hey, have some CPU problems past few week, its P4 2.8 Prescott, its running more that 65C when running games.

I just got a new PSU, Hiper 580W Dual rail 20a, 18a and a extra case fan which i though would help but apparently not.

Edit: seems the case is overheating after looking at my temps, still shouldn't be that high.

I just cleaned out my CPU fan and heatsink but still didnt help.

Is there any other reason it may be overheating?

Thanks

Have you checked your fan speed to make sure its spinning at the right speed?
