    Prescott too hot 64C

    hello,my first post here
    my system is as follows:
    ::GigaByte GA-8GPNXP DUO (not overclocked)
    ::Intel 3600mhz - 560 (1mb ache,800FSB) (not overclocked)
    ::stock cpu fan
    :ne fan attached to the case
    ::a fan attached above the northbridge.
    ::and a D.P.S that has a heatsink.
    :; the case has an airfilter like intel is suggesting.

    the system at the moment has a temperature of 64C and during a heavy load it could reach 80C easily.
    I was thinking of getting a" Gigabyte 3d Rocket cooler" but since the PC has not crashed only 2 times but i bleieve it's due to my 3d card X600pro
    (running this pc now for almost 5 hours).
    do you think that the motherboard is showing me the wrong temperature?even though it's a new model compared to others.
    what about using different thermal paste doesnt make a difference?
    and how many rotations per mintue does the intel stock fan perfom?mine is doing 2557..I havent seen it reached 2600rpm.
    I contacted Intel and they told me it rotates 5000rpm.

    thanks in advance
