Default CPU Overheating??

past few days my CPU has been hitting high temperatures (135F, 142F tops) and the fan has been spinning like crazy (4000+ Revs)
I have an Intel P4 540 (3.2ghz LGA 775) and stock Fan unit.
This hasnt happened to me before so i am at a loss what to do spend 40 bucks on a new fan or 8 bucks on more thermal?

should i be concerned.
btw i also hate the noise it makes at 4000 revs

maybe its the dust, cuz i have a 486 P4 3.2 prescott, and i was reaching temps of 154 Fahrenheit or 68 Celsius, so i gave it a good dusting, and now its back down at 48 Celsius at mid-use (internet, word, music etc.

Temperature and fan speeds are accurate from ABIT EQ the Temp is going from on the CPU itsself also

sometimes certain stock intel stock units cooling limit may be 3.2ghz since it is its limit it could have a harder time cooling it down. Or it could since it has prescott core those run hot! but mini has one that runs cool.

Another possibility is what kind of case you have is it very air flow friendly?

yeah, case matters alot, and i don't know if my cooler is stock, i think its foxconn, but u can try downloading everest from www.lavalys.com just to make sure of the temps, and then if its the same, maybe ur only option is buying a new fan, oh, and what paste r u using
