Default Athlon XP 2800+ Really Hot

Well, I've got a big heat problem here.
My AMD Athlon XP 2000+ Stock cooler ran at 56 degress celsius max. Without anything modfied at all. My brother bought the Vortex Dream 7 ACC-L72-U1 and there was a slight performance increase. From 56-55(not much i know) But it runs silent.

Now I'm using the 2800+ Barton and it runs idle 55 and gaming can bring it up to 68 degrees. This is way too hot. Is this a cooler problem or paste problem? Anyone with the same cooler? I heard that this HSF is unstable. Should I go buy a new HSF? I also wonder if the thermal diode beside my HSF's heatsink is spoilt. Anyone has any idea?
Definitely not the casing heat dissipation problem because once i stop gaming, the temperature drops rapidly to 55.. Roughly 1 min to reach 58 degrees.

the bartons run hotter than the others i think. Is it using the stock cooling also? You should make shur u have good airflow also. And get some arctic silver.

a bad temperature for an Athlon XP is 65 and above, they melt at 80
maybe if you cleaned up the wires in your case to give it better airflow it would help

It's also using the ACC-L72-U1. My XP 2000+ Runs ok with 45 at idle. I didn't expect such a big jump. And the Vortex Dream 7 is configured even for Athlon 64 bits. I'm stumped. I feel that 60 is way too high already. Shortens its life span by a lot.

the hsf may be put on incorrectly, and use some thermal compound. Also rearrange the wires in ur case for good air flow.
