Check your heatsink fan ensure there is no debris or dust build up also check system case fans also.
Clear any dust or debris on motherboard and other components use a mini vac if you have one or buy one from local computer store.
Try not to touch components when using vac tho.
Remove old thermal paste off cpu with tim remover and replace with a fresh thin layer.
If fans are old you may want to consider replacing them and maybe buy a more heavy duty heatsink fan for the cpu.
As well as a fan pulling cool air into the system having fans that pull hot air out of the system would be good situated on top of case or top to the rear, depends on design of case.
Hope this helps.
