Did you remove the fan and clean the ducts? If you disturbed the heatsink you may need new thermal compound.

Thermal compound facilitates the flow of heat through a joint. It comes in various forms as a pad, epoxy glue, and a grease. If disturbed air pockets are formed. User replacement is usually in the form of grease sparingly applied.
