Intel E7500 Running Hot During Testing

Hi there, I have a quick question. I was running Prime95 on my E7500 with stock cooler and a couple of extra case fans. It got pretty hot pretty fast. Within 3min it was running at 82 degrees celsius which I'm thinking is rather hot :(  . Should I try re-applying thermal paste? Or something else? I don't really want to spend much money on a new cooling system especially as I'm thinking of a new build in the near future anyway.
The ambient temperature is what I would call warm-hot (don't have an exact measurement) and I'm currently idling at 39 degrees.

Thanks in advance :D

The Hospital Saturday Fund?

LOLz jokes!

That is highly possible but always try with newer thermal paste, try stick to grey and white in colour they tend to disperse heat a little better.

Thanks guys. I'll try some new thermal paste and see what happens.
