32 to 46 degrees on the stock cooler is good; what is the cpu btw. Your average person wont be at about 40 under load i just read an arctic silver review and i can tell you your figures fit right into there review table and are good tems for a new pc.
But if it runs fine why are you bothering, if something aint broke trying to fix it is the easiest way to break it. Unless you are going to overclock it then dont bother changing it if you are get a good cpu cooler.
They are the best you can buy so if you one low cpu temps buy one of them, otherwise its fine leave it alone, if there was a problem your motherboard would detect it and shut it down(assuming its a new board).

In my experience, CPUs run at temps above 60C indicated by BIOS/software readouts can start to experience system hangs or crashes. Some folks have not experience problems with BIOS/software temps up to 65C. I personally would add fans or do whatever is required to keep the max temp under full load below 55C to insure 100% stability
This all assumes that the thermal diode is accurate witch in a lot of times it is not and in my experiance they read high.
My advice, if the computer is stable when under fullload I would not worry about it if unstable I would use a thermometer placed near the bottom of the heatsink to get the true temp to determine if temps are the reason for instability

If there was something wrong it would have shut down itself, you know you are really obsessed with your temps. Also are your fans identical you need to have a specific ratio of air in and out check out whats best for you.
See when you start playing with things that arent broken you break them this will teach you in future to be patient and leave stuff that aint broken alone. Get a thermometer and check the temp, you have probably put either too much paste ot too little go get the pad that came with the hsf and put it on see if that helps.

When you ge a hsf mind and check the weight you dont want to break the board.

I know its uk but you can see the name and model. Just be sensible and dont go buying anyhting like an asus starice the thing ways at least a kilogram i saw one in a local computer shop and was very surprised by both its weight and size. An thermalright cpu cooler is what you are after if it overheats with one of those you will need to think about liquid cooling. (XP-120s are big and dont always fit in look at XP-90 if you dont think you have the room)
