Nope. That's about normal. The full load temps a bit high, but nothing to be concerned about. Keep in mind if you have the heatsink/fan from Intel that has the termal pad (as opposed to one that uses thermal paste), it'll be a bit hotter.

I also have a P4C 2.4GHz, and it idles around 41C and hits about 55C under full load. Oh, and that's with the cpu running at 2.6GHz. My memory is junk and can't handle >2.6GHz, so it's upgrade time. Right now: 2.52GHz rock-solid. Better memory: ~3.0GHz or so. Cranking the speed from 2.4 up to 2.6Ghz didn't raise the temp even 1C under full load. Nice thing on mine: I've got an MSI mother board that has a little Windows program that monitors the temps, and lets me play with the FSB speed in real time. No rebooting to OC!
