Actually, the temps you mentioned aren't all that uncommon for a Prescott core CPU .
Even with a aftermarket cooler [heatsink/fan] the coolest I've ever got one to run was around 45C .

For the record the,
TR2TT TR2-M12 80mm Ball CPU Cooler - Retail
has a very high rating on newegg.
I bought one based on that.
It is a piece of junk as far as I'm concerned.
It worked so well I took it off & put the stock intel back on.
I still have the TR2TT TR2-M12 in a drawer .
