if you're worried about the temperatures, then get a new cooler.
You must be thinking of fahrenheit!!! The thermal spec of a Pentium D is 69c, Which means thats when melt down starts.
Dude you have a major problem going on, Do not run that machine until you figure it out. Are you sure you are reading in Celsius? Make sure the cpu Heatsink Fan is spinning, and Make sure it isn't plugged with dust bunny's.
Edit - 69c is if it's a 830 PD if its the newer 930 PD then the thermal spec is 63c
