Ok I think I solved the problem. Noiseblocker XL1 realy doesn't cool that well. I swapped NB on the heatsink for Nexus Real Silent and the NB in the back of the case as well. Now these are the temps after 15 minutes of Prime95 maximum heat/power consumption test (they should be pretty close to maximum temperature the CPU can reach right?):

This looks completely fine so I guess I won't even bother with new paste. Current case (Fractal Define Mini) ventilation is 2x Nexus@700 RPM in the front, Nexus@800RPM on the True Spirit and Nexus@800RPM in the back. Seems like voltage wasn't an issue at all and I just mistaken VID for actual voltage. Thanks for help everyone.
Also, one more question. i noticed in the BIOS, that I can change the CPU multiplier from x34 to x38 even though the H67 motherboards theoretically shouldn't support ovrclocking, and my CPU isn't unlocked model either. Does it mean, I can do a little OC anyway?
Yes you can probably set it to the max turbo setting all the time, 3.8

Do you have two fans on the cooler, or just one?
I have just the one evo fan on it , when running prime95 it will go to like 75-80% (1500rpm approx) with profile I setup in bios .

Ok, so my temps are really fine considering mine runs at 800 RPM all the time.

Yes, that would be the idle , low speed on evo , When I had it stock speed it was about 1200 rpm max with prime95 , I run it at 4.2 now and it can register as high as 1500rpm as I posted before .
My fan now runs about 1000-1100rpm most times , normal use .
