Printer starts printing bad after 1 month

I've got my Prusa i3 MK3S+ since half September and has been printing perfectly straight out of the box (I ordered preassembled, not the kit)

I have print hundreds of cases and all with the same good quality.

Yet the last two batches where showing bad overhangs, which only got more bad...

Same filament, same gcode (so no changes in settings), same printer (no changes)...

Those who I've asked all suspect mostly overheating/no-cooling. Both fans are working, and are on while printing.

Anyone who can advise me?

Is your filament wet?

If it was just sitting with no heating for a spell, and then it behaves different when you turn it back on - and if you left your spools just sitting out in the room air - then it is very likely your filament has done it's job and sucked up moisture from the air.
