It's still a safe temperature zone, but preferably you'd want it as low as you can get.

I would suggest an aftermarket heatsink. You would notice a big difference if you get either:

Newegg.com - XIGMATEK HDT-S963 92mm Rifle CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks
or
Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120 mm Core-Contact Freezer CPU Cooler W/TX-2 - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

Or just clean the dust off the heatsink, and see if that helps first.

Sound damping materials can in effect cause a PC to heat up, as the case it self, when made of aluminum helps radiate the internal warm air if it isn't being exhausted efficiently.

I do know, on a lot of these newer heatsinks with the really thin fins that are close, it is a lot easier for dust to accumulate, have you done a good cleaning recently of the heatsink and fan?

Those tend to work well if you have some fans that vibrate a lot, the gel like stuff absorbs it instead of the case absorbing it all, but stay away from the mats that literaly go onto entire panels.
