hmm then it was the thermal pad's problem.
When i was changing coolers from my stock cooler to the infinity, i noticed that even after a few months, the stock Intel thermal pad on the stock cooler was beginning to diminish.
I guess thermal pads do dry up faster than thermal paste, so in the beginning the cpu probably was at normal temps, and now we see the temps rise because the thermal pad is pratically gone.
of course this is just speculation.
