My Pentium IV 1.8 Ghz is running at about 47°C at idle and I checked it right after running Jedi Outcast and it was at 56°C. I have a CPU fan, heatsink, and 2 extra case fans. My system temp stays at around 37°C. Is this all normal heat temps?

Those are a little high, but your case temps kinda suck. Your case temps should really be under 30C unless you live in a really hot climate.

Your load temp is a little high, especially if you are running 1.5 v core. Try using Arctic Silver III if you aren't already.
