Hi, the CPU is running at 70 degrees celsius when idle and I was wondering if I could address this problem by changing it.
Here are my specs.
Intel Pentium D 3.20 Ghz
Nvidia Geforce 9500 GT
ASUSTeK Computer INC. P5PL2 Rev x.xx
500 GB HDD

I'm wondering if I also have to change the motherboard(somebody told me other CPUs aren't compatible with this motherboard).

So a new heatsink could solve the heat problem?
I forgot to mention that I reapplied the thermal compound and nothing changed.
