Somethings you should know about DELL:

They are cheaply made and expensive sold.
You might want to switch to some other program, maybe MSI CoreCenter (if your motherboard supports that...)

Aah wait, I am not a GeekU yet, so am I still authorized to post here?

No, software cannot cool. It can increase the coolrate, but it cannot cool on itself. (well, that was a stupid answer, of course you know that.)

There are numerous programs to use for temperature-reading and a tond of others to increase the coolrate. If you have the MSI AMD Athlon64 K8N Neo2

You can use CoreCenter to increase (double or even tripple) the coolrate. I have that motherboard and clocked it over from 1810 Mhz to 1954 Mhz and I use CoreCenter to increase the coolrate. When I don't overclock and all settings are default, I have it running on 1810 Mhz and at a temperature of 52 Degrees Celcius. (I dunno whatis is in Fahrenheit, I think something around the 125). When I overclock it to 2Ghz it will run at 39 Degrees Celcius, which is around the 68 Fahrenheit I think. It is so cool, because I use CoreCenter to increase the rate of the fans on my motherboard. I also use a new cooler, its a huge ventilator, that you have in your room when it is summer and about 80 Degrees fahrenheit outside. Well, I use it on my open case-computer. When I switch it on, the temperature on my motherboard becomes 14 Degrees Celcius. and the temperature on my CPU becomes less than 35 Celcius.
