Default Are these high temps?

I have a Pentium 4 3.2 Ghz HT, Model 550 with a heatsink.

I'm wondering if over 70 degress celcius is overheating sine I always get an alert from a self-installed program called MBM 5 for overheating.

I'm not sure what temperature is considered overheating, so could someone help me out on this please?

I'm no Intel expert but that seems ridiculously high. From what I hear the prescotts tend to be way high in temps, but for the most part Intels are supposed to be cooler than AMD's

You preferably want to keep your CPU in the 50s and low 60's upon full load if possible.

Even thats too high for my liking

That's really hot. Mine slows the processor down when it gets up to 60. (2.93)

How to keep it under that temp, the fan sounds like a vacuum cleaner if I adjust the fan to faster speed.

Without liquid cooling, its too hard to set up.

buy a new heatsink and fan, and use arctic silver 5 (or better) for thermal compound.
Im running an AMD sempron 2500+ @1750Mhz (apparently according to an artical i read the Spempron/Athlon 2500+ cpus are equivalent to celeron 2.4Ghz.) my cpu runs at 45*C full load.
