Exclamation Running way too hot with i5 3570K and H80i at stock temps

As the title said, I've got idle temps around 40C and during prime95 tests I reach 83C at a steady rate before aborting.

I've already tried reapplying thermal paste (Arctic Silver 5) and cleaned out the radiator with compressed air. My current setup is the two stock 120mm fans acting as intake sandwiching the radiator.

Currently my room temperature is around 18C, so these temperatures are unacceptable. I've had this cooler for about half a year now, could it just have worn out? Seems like a short lifespan for a ~90$ system.
