Default CPU Temperature

I recently purchased a P4 3.0 Ghz with HT from intel. i installed it myself and it went in easily. i upgraded from a celeron 2.4. huge difference.

running windows i get like 45'C idle and when i run games like bf2 or call of duty uo it shoots up from 55'C to 62'C
is this too hot? should i replace the thermal paste? heatsink?
thanks

same chip as me, and same temps as i used to get. had mine for a year now and recently had it getting to 65-70% while playing c.o.d, and causing problems. i took off the heatsink and noticed that the thermal grease had vitualy all gone. i purchased a vapo chill heatsink and fan put some premium thermal grease on it, now it is running cooler than ever.

Not really. Cooler is better. But Athlons generally are known for cooler running CPUs than Inte.

Well, my athlon 64 3000+ S939, on stock cooling including the heatsink and thermal pad Idled at 31C...it went max load 43-44. But for AMD 57 degrees and up I would shut it off immediately.
