Depends on whether it is an amd or intel system, and wheter or not it is or isn't under load.

Im not sure about intel, i think they can run a little warmer, but for a p3 i would imagine that is rather hot. Anything under 50 is good. If you can keep your max load under 50C then you should be ok. Intel guys, correct me if im wrong.

under "load" means that your processor is doing some work. Like running a 3-D game or doing some number crunching like prime95.

Idle or as you called it "unload" is where the cpu is doing very little. Like word processing.

I agree with thirtysix, 55 degrees sounds pretty warm.

Where are you getting your temps? MBM5?

you will need to know what kind of motherboard you have in order to set up MBM5.

As for suggestions to fix the temp problem:

1. does the CPU have a fan? (fan sits right on top of the CPU/ heatsink.)
2. have you tried to reset the heatsink on the CPU? (you'll have to clean the old stuff off, then use some quality thermal paste such as Artic silver.)
3. Try adding some case fans to get more air circulation in the case.
