I wouldn't be too concerned.
For better overall temps and piece of mind a decent cooler would drop temps significantly.
CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO
Thermalright True Spirit CPU Cooler
You'll need a case at least 7.5" wide to fit these coolers.
Otherwise use one of these if your case is under 7.5" wide.

Get fans with higher cfm and heatsinks that are much better than your current one.
