Default P4 2.4 producing way too much heat

Normally i'm repelled with threads that start with "are my temps too high?", but this just can't be right:

P4 2.4B 1.45v, stock speed, stock cooler:
idle temp 56C
stressed ~62C

P4 2.4B 1.45v, stock speed, alpa 8942 with medium rpm 80mm:
idle: 55C
stressed: 58 and going up

The case is well ventilated. Both the stock cooler & alpa 8942 are properly seated and thermal paste is used. This P4 produces less heat than my XP2400+, and it's 20C hotter with a better heatsink!

The heatsink feels about as warm as my heatsink would feel like with my XP2400 @ ~40C, but it the bios reads 60C. I can clearly see the heatsink making good contact, so what could be the problem?

Maybe the components for reading the P4 diode are faulty? I've got the latest bios flashed into my MSI 845E board.

Normally i wouldn't freak out that quickly, but it's my dads computer he hates the temp being above 50...

My P4 2000@2500 goes to a max of 47c @ 1,7V with casetemp @ 20c

I think there's something wrong with your mobo RB
