    is heatsink properly seated & tight to cpu & board. check intel faq site(if 1) to see if normal as i've read here & another forum site that prescotts run almost as hot as amd chips

    possible onboard temp sensor screwed up. if possible try in another board to see what temp is whether normal or high like now

    make certain have clear air flow thru case, all fans are running properly & if possible try another p4 psu just in case sending to much power to system, so almost like overclocking but is not

    after using computer for a while, feel the heatsink to see if hot or warm to see if temp sensor is reading true or not.
