Pc freezes and i have to shut it down

Hello, I just got this issue today and it is that my pc randomly freezes and i have to shut it down. Sometimes i have 10mins before it freezes when i boot the computer and sometime I have 5min, or maybe even more depends on what Im doing. Ive been browsing forums and installed speed fan program and it shows that my CPU temp is 60-65C and a fire besides it, what can I do to fix it? Is it maybe that I need new thermal paste because I havent put any since I bought the pc which was like 8months ago or something more expensive?

Make and model of PC ? new or second hand if its only 8 months old then it is still under guarantee

CPU 60 -65 sounds OK

First bought as second hand but then I bought a new radeon rx 560 4gb, asrock h61m-vg3 mobo, wd blue 1tb, kingston ssd 128, so pretty much only second hand piece is the cpu which is intel i7 2600, but in the app speedfan, its sayscpu 66 and a fire besides it, but I already ordered a cooler and expecting it tommorow

I can't believe that Thermal Paste is the problem. No,or badly applied Thermal Paste will usually produce a swift rise in temperature.

What may be causing your problem is dust between the fins of the heat exchanger
