    Hi,
    Can you please post a photo of your PC case from left side and one photo with the side cover off? It will give us a better understanding of the overheating.

    I tried with thermal paste today and it didn't help.

    Does your PC case have an intake fan in the front?

    That looks like the stock Intel cooler. You can improve on that with one of those tower coolers making sure it's dimensions don't foul the RAM modules and the gold coloured heatsinks.

    80 C is getting towards a bad position, it actually seems to be clocking down the HD 4600 drastically to protect itself also a bad sign. The iGPU is on the CPU chip.

    I have a CPU with HD 4600 on mine, and it's iGPU clock is 1150 MHz, and it's a Laptop not a desktop....
    My image is taken under load for the iGPU as you can see, yours I have no idea but it certainly is not under load for the iGPU. The max iGPU clock should be 1200 MHz.

    I'm afraid it is obvious it's severely overheating.

    I'd agree that the cooling is inadequate. The iGPU being so hot suggests that the CPU is the problem area.

    You can add a simple duct made from a plastic 2litre coke bottle to help ensure cooler air is fed to the heatsink.

    Always use the least amount of thermal paste on the CPU to ensure the best possible cooling. Too much thermal paste can act as a heat barrier and cause overheating problems.

    Maybe this will help with applying Thermal Paste. It's about the application of the paste, not necessarily the brand of paste.

    Where do you keep your PC case? I hope not it is next to the oil heater that is standing next to your PC case in the pic.

    Oh, no. I just moved it there to take my picture. And besides, I haven't used the heater in half a year. I keep the case under my table a meter away from the heater

    I'm not sure what that is.
