Have you looked at the condition of the fans, esp the cpu fan and heat sink?
Have you cleaned them out?

If the heat sink over the CPU has a clip for a fan I would definitely put on on there. As well as one blowing out the back of the case and maybe one sucking in from the front. Is there any spots in the case that have holes to mount a fan?

I would definitely replace those. At a minimum the one in the back should be a big help.

Not a problem, let us know how it goes after the fan is installed.
