You are looking for the CPU temp and you are in a risk zone there mate 73 degrees is way to hot even if your Cpu is prone to large temps that is still way too high i would reccomend getting a better cooling solution and some better thermal compound such as Arctic silver 5 also make sure that your Heatsink is actually seated properly on your CPU wit thermal compound.

Well its not the case fans it will be the Heatsink and fan you have on your CPU which is causing you the problem the Cooler and thermal compound need replacing.

An athlon xp idle temps should be arond 30°-35°C.
You should check for dust on the hsf as this could be restricting the air getting to the heat sink
