hi, i have pentium 3.2E socket 478 and mobo P4 c 800 deluxe e,
my case has in-air fans ( 120mm and 80mm fans ) and same combination for exhaust air.

idle temperature of cpu is 55- 60 celsius.
full load is around 70 celsius
( both with intel stock cooler ) >> temp. start rising over 70 while making 30 minutes MPEG 2.

i am wondering if these are right temperature.
i am considering 3rd party coolers that can keep temperatures b/w 35 - 45 celsius with MPEG 2.
any advice is appreciated

although your CPU is not overheating, it's quite close to its maximum allowed temperature (73C for this model).

If you're using the Intel-supplied fan, which should be adequate for this CPU, I suggest that you improve case cooling. See the "Cooling FAQ" and the "Case cooling" section on this site for more info.
