There's something not good. I don't pass 73c in a 25-26c room at 4.5ghz, with a single 1300rpm fan (just tested it).

Edit : Is this a Gemini II or a Gemini II S ?

I would still try to reseat the cooler with fresh tim. As for two different fan's.....they are more than likely working against each other at different speed's. Use two of the same fan's on a Y splitter cable to the same fan header.

i say you need a higher rpm fan with better static pressure, and more fans in your case

Definitly reseat the cooler it isnt a big overclock so I dont imagine you are using a lot of voltage the temp should be a lot lower than that
