Default cpu temp and case fans

hey all got my rig running but the cpu temps seem a little high to me 40-45c idle(stock cpu cooler couldnt get the xigmatek rifle to fit with the nb heatsink on)

what solutions if any is there for that maybe a different nb cooler that would allow me to use the xigmatek?

also is there a way to turn up the case fans on a nzxt tempest case?

as always thanks for the input.

put the cooler so the fan is facing the NB not so the fan is facing the RAM
