Yep that's definitely an improvement although keep an eye on it as it 
might go up when it's under load.

If it still doesn't get any better you'd probably be better off getting 
a new heatsink and fan and some good compound.

Should give you some suggestions of what to look out for if you do 
replace your heatsink and fan.
