Pentium D 805 (2.66GHz)
Pentium D 820 (2.8GHz)
Pentium D 830 (3.0GHz)

I'm assuming its 70 Celsius, and that would be way too high. I have the pentium d 820 and it runs idle at around 38-40 C You might want to check the heatsink to see if it's seated properly and check to see if the fans are running.

D 820- Idle: 33C
Avg Load: 40C
Heavy Load: Max ive seen was 44C after 4-5 hours of a heavy load.

That seems really high to me, mine was about 34 during the summer no AC either..

Intel Pentium D (dual core)
Pentium D 820 (2.8GHz) 63C
Pentium D 830 and 840 (3.0-3.2GHz) 69.8C


Note: Pentium 4 and Pentium D temperature specifications indicate the maximum cover temperature, which is typically lower than the temperature reported by the internal thermal diode. Therefore, your system may be running fine even if the reported "CPU temperature" in the BIOS is higher than the temperature specified here. This does not mean that you're on the safe side, though.
