Ok so my CPU:Core 2 duo e8200 2,66 runs at 80+ degrees while nothing is on (program or game). I did everything.
1.Clean the heatsink
2.Change the thermalpaste (New one is cooler master)
3.Oiled the cpu fan
4.Cleaned EVERY component in the case
And my gpu temperature is always 80+ im using a stock cooler and i didnt have any problems with it for 7 years now. I did check my bios and the fan speed is 2k-2,5k rpm
Please help me.

Have you overclocked the CPU or GPU?

This cooler is very old; its push-pins might just have lost grip due to deformation of the material. The only way to fix this seems to be to get an aftermarket cooler compatible with Socket 775.

Assuming you did no overclocking and the machine is running properly (you never stated it not functioning), then perhaps whatever temperature software you are using is producing an incorrect reading?

i thought of getting water cooling but i dont know if it is better than normal air cooling

Watercooling is always better.

Waste of money in your case. Get a decent air cooler like Arctic Freezer 13 or similar for socket 775.

Try checking what frequency the processor is running at if possible. If there is a cooling problem then your processor would be running at a very low speed to cool itself. I cannot think of a software that would tell you, but I do know Windows 8's task manager can.

well one core is at 2,66 and the other is at 1,36 if that is what you are asking about

I chose it as the best solution. It's solved now.

I vote for aftermarket cooling since everyone I know including myself has had issues with Intel's push-pin HSFs failing to do their job at the 3-4 years mark.

My living room PC has a 212+ on its E8400 and it only reaches 65C core temperature under full-load even with the FAN DISCONNECTED.
