CPU heating!

I am following 8-CURRENT AMD64. I have a Phenom II 955. Up to the 3rd week of 
January, I had 8-STABLE.  Idle CPU temp was 42~44 C (which is already not 
excellent, i know) and full load would never go above 60 C (compiling VBox 
from KDE, for instance).

After updating to 8.2-PRERELEASE, my temps now are:
idle:not less than 48 C 
full load (same above conditions): it reached 65.5 C with peaks of 66 C!.

Was there any big change between these versions that could be causing this?
