When mine over heats i add a ice pack with a towel so that moister won't affect it. Hope it helps and then im able o run it for a longer period of time. still plan on moding this like adding a larger heat sink and a new case for it.

I would try contacting google first for your options, if nothing hits your fancy there, either buy a new chromecast or open it up and re-paste, note that if it has been on contact with liquid, even near steam, water will have ingressed inside and that's the cause of the overheating. something shorting (even a little) inside on that board will cause havoc and overheating.
