Hey all, I have a Intel sandy bridge I5-2500 processor in my computer.


When I watch online streams and set those in full screen..they start lagging, along with the computer. 

It also happens when I am downloading something or watching something HD on VLC.


Core temperature is 96°C during these events.. it is too much?


Should I get some thermal compound? 



Also, I don't have any video card.. I am just using the processor's one.

By face value, yes that is too high as the processor speed will throttle specially on dedicated GPU. But see if you can clean and reapply a small amount of thermal paste then check the difference. It would be better if you can acquire a dedicated video card on you next budget. :)
