It's possible you have a blocked heat sink. I think you may need to clean it up. I suggest you do clean first because the possibility of damage is low. If this is not the case, it may due to the hard drive. Please try this first:

quick clean of a laptop can be done with out opening by using a can of compressed air ,if its really dirty and has buildup inside ,then yes it will need to be taken a part

Usually overheating would make a computer a safety shutdown. Are you sure its thermal events by looking onto hardware temperature software or it slows down after hours of computer session? What activities could be done during this events occurs?

still under warranty ,sen it back and tell them to fix it

a quick clean doesn't involve taking it apart ,just blow off the exposed openings , fan and heatsinc
like in the link ,scroll down through the pictures and see the openings on the side and bottom

By taking this action periodically as a preventive measure, you can greatly reduce the possibility of component damage and prevent the slowdown of the computer's performance.
