We have a long way to go before having all units, even budget ones, rated at 40C or so, if that's...

These are typical gaming results, and not an absolute max though (like Linpack + Furmark or OCCT:PSU test). It will be even higher, if you go for higher voltages.

Could have had an impact. High ripple could have been dissipating as heat. Either that, or pins were coming loose.
