Unhappy Overheating CPU need Power Supply Diag.

O.k. I have had my computer (AMD XP 2500) with a 350W PSU for almost 2yrs now and over the last month my system is idling at 50 Celcius ..and under full load 78 Celcius. I have recorded my voltages below...could these be my problem? (e.g. is there too much variation on my 3.3V and 5V and 12 V rails? ) I have no idea what is a safe tolerance to prevent overheating...
Thanks in advance...
