Hi,

I've installed a new cooler today. Cryorig H7.
The temps I get worry me a bit.

The CPU idles at ~38c. Under load (CINEBENCH R15 Extreme). It got to 66c.

I am not sure if these temps are healthy.
Would reapplying thermal paste help?

Screenshot after the cinebench test:

Which case and motherboard do you have?
Those temps are fine.
You could try changing the fan speed curve to increasing the fan performance, thus lowering temps a bit.
Case is cooler master n400 and the motherboard Z370 gaming plus

Could it be that I put too little of thermal paste?
