  1. very normal.. :) ... and yeach better use good cooler after market
    you can find cheap good cooling in
  2. Well while its high its still not unusual for a Pentium 4, but yes you could get better cooling, one of these should do

    Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev 2 CPU Cooler

    Also what PC case is your system in ?

    Dont forget your case airflow should look something like this
  3. Since not ALL p4 chips are on the LGA 775 socket(there are some socket 478 kicking around), i recommend checking to see what socket you have, this will effect the heat sinks you can install.

    If you get cpu-z under package, it will tell you the socket type. You will also get so see the core type as well, some core types ran hotter then others.

    Also, it is recommended that you get an air duster and clear away any dust in the heatsink as this can lead to higher temperatures
