Dirty af cooling system, must be lots of dust inside. And repaste both of the CPU an GPU dies, it's 4 years since you bought it (assume you never actually taken care of it) so it must be dry already.

 

Arctic Cooling MX4 is good for it (personally using it and it's good enough). Or Noctua NT-H2 or even Thermal Grizzly one.

Humor me, as you should do.

 

Daily drivers:

 

Acer Aspire E5-475G

Intel Core i5-7200U 2.5 GHz (Turbo 3.1 GHz) || NVIDIA GeForce 940MX 2GB

4GB Micron DDR4 + 4GB Team Group DDR4 PC19200

120 GB WD Green M.2 SATA SSD + 480 GB Pioneer APS-SL3N SATA SSD

Windows 10 Single Language x64

 

Some old computer laying around as my HTPC

Intel Pentium Dual Core E2160 1.8GHz || (fake lol) NVIDIA GeForce GT730 2GB DDR3

Some random old motherboard. Works fine tho.

512 MB + 512 MB random DDR memory

40GB IDE HDD + 1 TB old laptop SATA HDD, got bad sector unfortunately

Linux Mint 20 Ulyana Xfce x64

Some old TCL CRT TV laying around + RCA to HDMI converter

 

Xiaomi Redmi Note 8

4GB RAM, 64GB Internal Storage 

64GB SanDisk Ultra (80MB/s Read) External Storage

MIUI 11 Global

Aukey Turbo Charger PA-U28 QC2.0 + Aukey CB-CD4 PVC Type-C Cable

Because it's not effecting the GPU's at all.

Your laptop can be opened up from the bottom by removing a bunch of screws. I would also suggest removing the thermal paste and clean all contact surfaces before reapplying new paste. Pretty much any paste will be better than the old stuff. The GPUs have more thermal headroom and will not throttle as early as your cpu does. Clean the the heatsink with a can of compressed air or use a straw and blow into it. You should be able to remove a lot of dust that way. I like to position a vacuum hose behind it to catch all the loosened dust. I personally use Isopropyl-Alcohol to clean the heatsinks and Noctua NT-H1 as a paste. If you want some tiny bit more performance, Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut or Kingpin KP1 are also a good choice, but a fair bit more expensive.

If you have an air compressor, they work great for cleaning out pc vents. If you don't have one, I'd highly recommend picking up a cheap harbor freight 3 gallon! Open up the laptop and set the compressor for like 30-40psi, should clean it right up.

I used a pancake compressor for that at one time with an old build and it constantly ran, mainly because I put the PSI to 90, but made sure to not stick the end of the nozzle close, about 12" away. 

 

If you have a dry vac from a workshop and you can connect the hose to the return side, this does a decent job as well.

90 psi is a crazy amount of air...I think the nozzle I have only allows 45 psi and that seems pretty powerful.

90 was the max on the nozzle I got, also from Harbor Freight with that extension with a 45 angle in the last couple inches. It also came with a rubber nozzle that further restricted the outlet on the end of the extension. I don't use the compressor for cleaning the computer out anymore.
