You do not have to worry about your temperatures.

35/40 degress C for the cpu idle is pretty good temperatures. Mine runs around 22-60 it always changes. But what do you expect? I have a emachine LOL. If you are not satisfied or having problems with overheating, try adding a case fan.

How did you manage to get your idle temperature 5 to 10 degrees lower then the average indoor room temperature? Do you keep your computer in your fridge?

water cooling is what you do when you have everything in your PC up to scratch and you are bored, otherwise spend the money on parts air cooling is more than adequate for any system.

idle temps arent what you bother about its load temps if youre load temp is above 60 you should probably do something, although you would never apply more thermal paste it doesnt quite work like that, its purpuse is to help bridge the microscopic gap between the heat sink and CPU heat spreader you only need a little too much actually increases the temperatures.

PS if you are getting drunk while sitting at your computer posting at a tech support forum you may have slight problem.
