What you need is a good aftermarket CPU cooling solution instead of the stock AMD heat sink, and have you inspected and cleaned the dust bunnies out of the machine?

I'm not sure what's available in India, but something as cheap and simple as a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ runs circles cooling over the stock AMD heat sink, I surely wouldn't want to loose any of my stock performance under clocking and still possibly run hot.

If you could supply a store link you would use, I'll gladly point you in the cheapest right direction?

Yes buy a aftermarket cooler like a Coolermaster Hyper 212 or EVO.

You may also need to upgrade your case cooling fans to get more airflow through your pc.

Good catch geekapproved! ;) 

Yes the case cooling fans could also be your problem, no matter how good the CPU cooler is, if it's starving for fresh air, it cannot perform the cooling you need in your hotter environment.
