    Seems like you have a clogged up exhaust vent. Try taking a can of compressed air and blowing it around where the hinge of your display is. If this isn't the problem and it isn't software related, it could easily be dirty fans, or even the notorious thermal paste problem.

    I'd reset the SMC first and foremost, before doing something as drastic as thermal paste replacement.
