Try cleaning out the fan, They will suck up dusk and create a big dust smog and needs to be cleaned up every few months.

Try getting a can of compressed air and shooing it up the fan and will fire the dust out of the vent. or dismantle it and remove the dust properly

Go to Power Settings, Change Plan Settings (put him on Balanced if he's not on it already), Change Advanced Power Settings

Then, Processor Power State, then Maximum Processor State

It'll be on 100% probably. Knock it down to about 95%.

Shaved 20c off my HP dv6's idle and load temps, with no noticeable drop in performance. Also stopped it shutting off due to overheating. For some reason this also brought GPU temps down.

What GPU does he have? there might be power saving options in its controls, try using those too. Less power = less heat.

I think the dv6 and cq60 are similar, so this should work.
