    I believe you can set your PC to only allow the engine to use a certain ammount CPU, but I dont know a lot about PC,s.

    1. Clean out the dust buildup from inside the computer, if you don't do that on a regular basis.

    2. Go into the Stockfish engine configuration and change the number of threads from the default value of 4 to a lower number.

    One or both of those should help.
