Default odd happening dont you think?

To start off i have an Opty 144 which shoulnd't idle more 40C, but anyway i was working on my computer about a week ago and decided i would shove the clip (you know that stupid clip on the AMD HSF's that always breaks) down just because, well everything was fine at the time, later on i overclocked it up to 2.2GHz and my temps were within the high 50's (exceptable to me). So i leave it off for a week (cause i went to my dads), come back yesterday day, fire up the computer, check my temps and low and behold my temps were idleing at 70C!, i was like #$^@#$@#$!, and reset everything to stock speeds, checked it again and it didnt change so i blew it off and went to bed, come home from school today and figure i might as well flip the clip back up.
So i fired it up and my temps were back down into the 30's.

Anybody have any idea what would cause this? My guess is that it was putting to much pressure on the CPU some how causing my temp sensor to go nuts
