    Just a couple of other notes along with what ddp suggests...

    Make sure that the CPU heatsink is still firmly attached to your CPU and didn't come loose on a corner. 66c is way to hot for a P4 at Idle temp. There is always a way to get more fans in the case if you try. Does the front of your case have a foam pad over the fan inlet or front side of your PC?

    could try newegg.com, tigerdirect or your local computer store. if your computer is a dell or compaq then might have to get 1 of their psu. if a clone computer almost any psu will fit your case
