finally, i’ve managed to find the reason for my high CPU temperature. The answer, too much thermal compound on the CPU die. It seems when i took out my heatsink fan for cleaning last time, i have applied too much thermal compound on the processor and this resulted in an uneven surface between the die and the heat sink. I thoroughly clean the heat sink and apply less thermal compound than the last round. now the CPU temperature has been stabilised and able to run Prime95 at around 61C. Guess this proves that my power supply is not the major factor in the high temperature of the CPU
