MacBook Pro Retina late 2012 overheating

Hi,

My MacBook Pro retina A1425 (late 2012) model is overheating a lot.

By just browsing the internet it shows 42 Celsius. And while using a tool or app it is raising to 55 Celsius, and above 60 Celsius it shuts down completely.

I am using SMCFanControl to fix this problem, but it is not always helping.

Is it normal for a MacBook Pro retina to shutdown at 70 Celsius?

There is no water damage at all, and it is still the original MacBook pro retina.

btw. I already put a new thermal paste but that is also not helping.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

It shuts also down when running apple hardware test.

I can feel the heat from the body of the macbook.
