if everyone doesn't think that these temps are anything to worry about then i wont re-seat the heat sink. id prefer not to do that again. but if i need to then let me know. i will buy good thermal paste and re-apply it if i need to.

The temps are still in the acceptable range, but if it was my PC - I'd invest an hour or two of my time in reseating the heatsink & applying quality TIM, for peace of mind if nothing else. Keeping the cheap generic paste is just asking for trouble IMO...
Plus you would lower the temps about 5-10C with a good compound.

Even if you don't exceed the maximum temps for the CPU, extra heat still reduces the lifespan of a processor. If you can reduce the temps significantly, it is definitely worth the time and expense.
