47C is good for your process, because of the core I would want to keep that one under 50C at all times, the 47C was probably on idle, so the load temp most likely exceeds 50C. I would be looking into a new HS if I were you.

bios temps are too high in reality your probably idling in the low 40C territory not bad. my biod said i was running at 15C when used my probe utility it said 6C and big difference if ya know what i mean

That HS only has 10-20 CFm on an aluminum HS, it will offer little protection if not do worse than the stock one, I recommend looking at 30+ CFm on an aluminum HS.

That's ok, the post will help others, also I made a typo you want to find an all copper HS or a aluminum with a Copper core for better heat dissipation.

The oder of heat conductors from worst to best is:
Aluminum
Copper
silver
and I beleive Diamond is the best performance, but not easy to find.

Edit:
The AS5 is a good purchase, it will help a lot.

I don't beleive it with the stats on that HS, they may be getting that with the box getting cool air from outside.

"I have this on my P4 2.4C Northwood overclocked to 3.24 and it rarely goes above 50 celsius under heavy load."

In the Front, out the Back.
It is always recommended to mount twin sets, always have the same amount being pushed in as you have being pulled out.

mount the back to be outlets, and all others to be inlets, use the same fans to keep the pressure balanced.

The better ventillation will help to lower the temps, but you will not need to have the full 6 fans running that may be overkill, try two on the back, 1 on the front, and 1 on the side.

Those are your temps on load, the BIOS reading is temps on idle.
