How old is your laptop? Mine is over 2.5 years old, and till last week I could have used it as a hotplate!! Its was its exhaust fan were always on stuck on high.
So I did a little DIY. I took out the heatsink, and cleaned it properly. The fins were filthy with dust and had a coating on oil and dirt on them...
After 30 mins of scrubbing with a de greaser and toohbrush, I re fit everything.
15 degree instant drop. In CPU and GPU temps. Fan cant be heard anymore.

The solution is to open up the laptop and clean the clogged area to ensure proper air flow.
