I have a Huge Zalman cooler blowing onto my proc, after playing a few games and with this hot weather it idles at 61 degrees.. what the hell is going on?

What would happen if i made it blow outside the comp?

I think you would pretty much have to leave the side panel off to make that work. If you have multiple fans in your computer, make sure that you have some blowing both in and out. If you have a side case fan blowing in, you need to have a couple blowing out of the case.

What is your ambient room temperature?

My AMD Athlon 4600+ idles at around 40 degrees Celsius when the room temperature is about 20 degrees Celsius. If it's 40 degrees Celsius in your room, then I'd hardly expect anything below 55 if not 60.

As far as solutions go, you may consider replacing the thermal paste underneath the cooler. Also you might check the fan RPMs some way and make sure that its responding to the CPUs temperature. My mobo has fan sensors that will tell me how fast the CPU fan is running.

That cooler should be capable. Very capable. What's the temperature in your room?

As for the Pentium D (I'm assuming your using a Pentium D rather than Pentium IV, right?) it shouldn't run too hot so you should be good to go.

Again, I'd re-apply the thermal paste underneath the cooler.
