146º F is equivalent to 63º C - that's pretty darned hot! This also depends on if your P4 is a Prescott or not (the Prescott's run hotter than the others).
My P4 Prescott runs about 50º C during normal operations - haven't ever checked it while gaming. FWIW - I've got a ThermalRight SP-94 cooler with a 92 mm fan and ducted outside air blowing on the processor.
The problem is...the more heat, the more quickly the processor degrades.
