If these temps are correct I'd say you definatly need a new HSF and fast, if thats your idle speeds I'd suggest you don't do anything to heat it up like games till you get a new cooler aswell!

Uhh no.... Asus thermal probes are fuked up the ass...... Especially the older mobos like the KT266A and before...... Get an external probe and connect it to the mobo, and put it close to the core, then you'll get more accurate temps.

No, I wouldn't say a new Heatsink.. the Delta T (CPU - Motherboard) is only 19C. Of course, is this at full load or idle?

What is your case cooling system like?
