Default Your CPU Temps??

Question for you all? I recently built me a pretty nice new system..and the dumbass I was didnt clip the heat sink down correctly...so I finally installed MBM to measure the temp and it was at 75 degrees C at idle and 85-90 when taxing the system!!!

So I then redid the heat sink at now idle at 49-50 and at full load 60-65. Are these temps normal or still kind of high? What do you have and what are you running at? I have the OEM pentium4 heatsink and 3 case fans...

system specs are
Intel Pentium4 3.0GHZ
512MB DDR RAM
ATI Radeon 9800 PRO 128MB
WD IDE 7200RPM 160GB HD

Am I ok? now?

(prescotts run very hot)

Very interesting...does the aftermarket heat sink make that much difference? Now first my appologies I posted this in the wrong section.. n000bb i Know! lol... 2nd... In terms of proper "air flow" what should be the pattern or process..anybody have a layout or willing to talk about the path from start to finish??which are intake fans which are exhaust fans and that type of deal? thanks all this place rocks!
