I have the H50 and I have been running 1.36V with 4.5GHz overclock for about 6 months now, and it usually runs at 60-65 degrees at most. Today, it hit 95 degrees for the first time, randomly, and I had to restart my computer and undo the overclock and then wait about 15 minutes for the CPU to cooldown. It is now at around 65-75 degrees at stock speeds and voltage. What went wrong? (Should be closer to 40 right now)

Try putting a new coat or thermal paste.
Opened the side of my case, wiggled the H50 tubes and it dropped back down to 50 degrees. Wtf. Would it be safe to re-overclock it now?
Edit: Closed my case it is back to 70 degrees. My case is the HAF922, I don't see a ventilation problem in sight.
