hi guys, i'm not too sure if this is still usable, i'd say i probably use this for 3 years now, the copper plate looks a bit bad imo but i'd like to have your guys opinion, also why i'm concerned is that my temps were significantly higher on idle (50c-55c), they used to be 36-40 max, even with new thermal compound (mx-4) the temps didn't went down, thanks in advance!

Nothing really to worry about looks like standard copper oxidization, if you want to clean it off some metal polish or as said very fine sandpaper.

i think its time for you to change?

even tho liqued coolers can be used for like 5years?

but if you have problems before it reaches due date then you probably need to change

Try sanding the copper plate to get it cleaner contact.
