I suggest that you try the tool "CPU-Z", which does exactly that - identify your CPU withou the need of opening your case and removing the heatsink.
Get it from http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php - it's free.
70°C is quite high for some P4 models. For summer, you should consider better cooling.

Ok, first of all, thanks for a fast answer...
And now the rest...
I downloaded the tool you recommended to me and here is what I got:
Then, in order to use the Processor Spec Finder at Intel corporal site I got from this report Mfg Tech , Stepping and Cache Size and whit some other info from Sandra I narrowed my search and found that my Thermal Spec is 70C .
I managed to lower the average temperature in 4~5 C after long time of no cleaning... CPU FAN was almost blocked but now is clean.
By using hard cpu usage programs I am reaching now 62~63 C instead of previous 67~68 .
It seems to be still high...
What is your recommendation? Should I get a new FAN? How much do you believe it will cost me?
Thanks in advance

I had a same problem.Original boxed Intel coolers seems to me that are very bad solution.I have a Genuine Intel 2.8GHz and I replace original Intel cooler with Spire (I think it is Easy stream IV).Now I have much better results with my pc temperature.If you want to know which processor you have in your machine you have on Intel site program for that.If you want I can send you this program by e-mail.Contact me if you want to send you this program on this e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org, or just try to find it on Intel site.
