Check power options in the BIOS.

Have you checked the ventilation holes at the back and side of the PC to make sure that they are not blocked up by dust, dust can build up very quickly if you leave it downloading overnight on a regular basis. Dust is the main culprit of the computer overheating, it might pay to check your cooling fans are all working too.
