You did some major hardware change without doing a clean format.
A clean format of Windows is not required but would be a really wise choice to do so.
Even if you fix the problem you have now, I am sure you might have some other problems in the future.
Also which CPU do you have? If you have a 3570k or a 3770k 34 idel is not high and can be considered normal.
Best way to apply thermal paste to CPU is drop some thermal paste as the size of a pea, and than just apply the corsair h100 on it.
