try cleaning your fans (chassis, processor and others) with a brush and remove dust...
One of the reasons for P4 HT getting heated.

Also, ensure there's enough space for air to ventilate between the CPU and the outside environment!

Thumbs up

Hi would also suggest checking all the cabling is tidy and check all fans are operating and the airflow is not being blocked in any way!
