Since it is older you probably just need to redo the heat paste on the cpu.
I agree with paton on this also, sounds like you got abit too much thermal paste or grease on it.
Apply thermal paste like below.:
Put the heatsink on turn it left and right a little so the grease will spresd it a little.
Make sure the intel heatsink pegs are in rhe socket otherwise "you will have heat issues if loose.
Put the cpu fan wire on cpu 3 prong wire, wait for 5 minutes for the grease to settle.
Turn it back on boot to the bios screen if you can and check the system tempatures.
