Hi, Remove the CPU, clean it and add a new grease...

Unscrew the heatsink, clean off all the old thermal paste and apply fresh paste, and clean out all the dust.

If after a good cleaning and still over heats, replace fan cooling assembly. Good luck.

Add ice block

okay I'll add

Make sure you apply it directly to the motherboard. Salt water works even better.

i think i should try H2SO4 .

Clean up the fan, replace the thermal compound and if that doesn't work - look for new heatsink and fan
