So what is cooking with that? Do I need to add a fan and point it someplace? My motherboard is an Asus P5N73-AM.Socket 775 It is running an Intel Core Duo L7300 @ 2.66Hz I'm concerned about the heat and if I need to be taking action now so I don't fry something.

Depending on your board... there is probably a heat sink covering the chipset, and your handheld thermal sensor might not see it.
Check all of the heat sinks on the motherboard to make sure the thermal paste has not dried up, and make sure it is still making contact with the chip.
I would suggest replacing the thermal paste on those heat sinks anyway, even if it looks fine.
let me guess... reddit?
So not Reddit?
No... definitely not reddit...
No, upgrading at this time with newer ram, processor and so forth is way, way out of focus.
