Have you tried cleaning the dust out of your case and parts?

Pick up a can of compressed air at about any office supply place. Read and follow the directions. Be sure to unplug your comp before you open it up, and to ground yourself.

An idle of 53? Geez, that's hot. My load runs about that (54).

When you clean it out, be sure to remove the fan from your heatsink and blow it out good, as well as blowing out the fins of the heatsink itself.

You might want to look into a new HSF. ThermalTake and Zalman are very highly recommended around here. You may also want to look into a case fan. Heck, even a new fan on your heatsink might make a big difference.

Make sure that your wires are tied up and back so that they do not disrupt air flow as well.

Intel P4 prescott cores run alot hotter, but i got mine down to 33 idle.

I would suggest some AS5 and the heatsink listed in my sig.

my P4 prescott runs often at 52 degrees idle with stock heatsink and antec silver; but its totally depending on room/ambient temperature. Currently its cool in this room so its at 45 degrees......Paul, buy some Artic silver and cleaner and reapply the new thermal paste and I guarantee you'll see a drop in temps....if you have more money get an aftermarket heatsiink/fan like a zalman 7700.....let us know!

if you dont know what p4 you have download this:
