Default CPu temperature

Hi guys,
i just build one system

Athlon Xp 2800+
Foxconn Motherboard
1.25 Gig DDR
Radeon 9200 (128MB)
Sound Blaster Audigy Platinum
Thermaltake Icage (HDD cooler) 120mm fans (intake)
Thermaltake Powersupply 430W (2 fans)
1 rear fan (exhaust)
2 side fans (intake)

I'm using the original heatsink, when first i read the temp it wa around 56C Idle, and i've change to the different more powerful heatsink fan (coolermaster (60mm) it came down to 46c (idle) and 51c (full loads).

I'm still not satisified with the current temp, as i read in this forum that some people manage to get 35c (without water cooling).

I'm thinking to change my heatsink with:
Thermaltake Pipe 101 Heatsink, and Thermaltake UFO Fan, UV Green as the fans.

i also think to use the arctic silver, and upgrade my fan case to dunon with higher cfm for my rear intake that blow straight away to my CPU.

I try to get the 35c (idle)

any suggestion guys?

Thank you

looks like a good cooler. I was going to =get one, but the store I went to didn't have them. and neither did their supplier, so I got the Silent Boost. it's not the best, but it stopped it from crashing due to overheating
