If no physical changes took place around the time you started noticing the temperature increase, the heat sink and fan is probably at the end of its rope. It may be time to replace it. The Hyper 212 Evo is one of the best bang-for-buck CPU coolers on the market at the moment. You can probably get one for as low as $25.00.

Hi i have considered doing exactly that but looking at pcpartpicker.com it says the evo 212 is not compatible with my case but looking around other forums they seem to have no trouble getting the evo 212 into the case

Yeah sorry the Hyper 212 EVO looks to be 5* mm too large for your case to close. I'd just go with the Hyper T4 then. You can strap two fans on the T4 for a push pull config and it will cool a lot better than the current alpin 64 you have. Which is about as effective as the AMD stock cooler - albeit quieter.

Would you be able to provide a link the cooler plus the additional fan? Thanks

Practically any 120mm fan will clip on. Here's one I picked at random.

The only other causes to this problem that I can think of would be :

1. The heat sink and fan you currently have is not seated firmly/correctly.

2. You did not spread the thermal paste evenly or you used way too much.

3. The fan is nearing the end of its life and is dying out.

4. You're overclocking the cpu further than you have in the past.

5. You moved to a desert and have no air conditioning.

Other than those I can't think of any reason why your cpu would all of a sudden be over heating.
