Current CPU cooler? Stock??

Do you need more RAM? If not, SSD drive would give more benefit.

those temps look pretty normal to me,


i would just remove your CPU fan/heatsink assembly and give them a good cleaning,


apply new thermal paste when reinstalling,


unless you have money that you really want to burn, up to you
