What are you running on the system? The report implies something quite heavy with graphics.

This systems graphics is quite limited, you maybe pushing it past its ability. I would clean the fan and the heat sinks fin area to make sure you are getting the maximum cooling the heat sink offers. I would also install a good thermal monitoring app like TG Pro which allows you to visually see what’s happening within your system and even boost the fans RPM to maximize the cooling.

Sadly your system is locked in with only 8GB of RAM as it’s soldered to the logic board in this series, only at time of purchase can you get a 16GB system.
