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.
