Which exact Xeon part number is it? You can look up the thermal
specification on Intel's web site:

Looks like most of the 2.4 GHz Xeons' maximum operating temperature is
65C, but one of them is 85C. So let's hope you have that particular
part (the X3220). :)

Anyway, that should confirm whether it is "too hot" or not.
