Idle temps might stay where they were before delidding.
The only important thing in here are the load temps.
For example my ambient temps right now is ~26°C, and my 3770K doing nothing but run Firefox idles with ~40°C hottest core:
You shouldn't be worried about that, but you must consider re-doing your CLU application.
After I reseated mine, max temps across cores were more even (just a 4°C difference at much)

1. Can you use the thermal paste remover from arctic silver to remove the glue and whatever is on the die?
I don't remember just now what have been said about those cleaners when used in the die, but I would rather just use some 90%+ Isopropyl alcohol.
More than enough to take out the Intel TIM and loosen the black glue.
