Why is my computer suddenly getting hot?(CPU)

So I made a custom PC few months ago, and It works perfectly, its' temp was normal, everything was plugged in right, but after 2 months, my PC started to make loud fan noise. So when I checked it's (CPU) temperature it was 61 C on idle. With no programs on. I checked the AMD processor website and choose my CPU. It says it can only handle up to 62 C... So I checked my CPU, and apparently I put too much thermal paste and it leaked to the bottom of my chip (but very very little amount). So I got some 99%USP Isopropyl Alcohol and cleaned it very carefully. Then I applied new thermal paste. But it still does that....
Also by the way there is a tiny crack on the top of the CPU....
The heatsink/fan has tiny amount of thermal paste on it.
My PC specs.
CPU-AMD Phenom II x4 955BE
CPU cooler-Regular stock fan that came with the CPU
GPU-MSI r6450 2gb gddr3
PSU-Corsair CX430 430w
*2 case fans(120mm)*
I hope you could help me, thanks
