It's a little warm. What type of cooler do you have?

Your hard drive is hot, that's the tip off as to what's happening. Well, for that matter, everything is hot.
I see the case fan is only going 898 rpm's. What size is it and how many?
Is the computer sitting in the blast from a heater vent?
Is the inside of the case caked up with dust?

Bad airflow, dust buildup, weak fans, or need of another fan could all be reasons. I don't think the temps are super high, but they could be lower.

You don't need a whole lot of thermal paste to get the job done. In fact, too much could hurt cooling performance. Make sure you cleaned all old thermal paste from both the CPU and heatsink before applying new.

If the fan is going too slow changing it out for one that goes faster would help.
When you cleaned the fan did you clean the rest of the insides? Like the front air vent?

What model and brand name is your computer? Got an idea and need to know.
