Stock coolers (if still the same old Intel design without a back plate) do have the potential of working itself loose in rare conditions.
With your stock cooler, It may not be a good idea for the long term just re-securing it.. Coz the paste has been "baked" at 90 degrees C.. Chances are the paste has crusted/harden up somewhat... And there may well be little pockets of air between the cooler and the CPU (air = heat insulation) ... While it seems fine now, long term wise maybe not so good..
Looking at the temps, honestly it's not a big deal and not serious at all (esp if you don't overclock).
However since you get a free Netplus 2+1 warranty anyway, just bring it back to Netplus and have them do a proper job? May well save you some grief in the long term...

Don't fix things that ain't broken.
All things considered what I said is really a very very small risk... Nothing to be worried about at all as long as you don't overclock...
You can just leave it as it is and enjoy your movies..
