Pentium D's tend to run hot. Make sure your heatsink/fan is dust free & properly installed with just a thin line of paste running across the center of the CPU:

Also, your case needs to be adequately cooling. Generally all that's needed is a single exhaust fan in the rear of the case. Some people also add a front intake fan but it's benefits are debateable. Side panels fans should not be used.
