That temp is quite high for Asus P4C800-E Deluxe. My chip OCed to 3.5GHz doesn't go over 46C under load. The P4P800 and P4C800 series are notorious for low cpu temp readings. You are probably more in the 61C idle and 74C load. And the cpu throttling occurs at about 65-70C even though Intel claims 95C....this has been proven time and time again.
