If it is getting to hot then you will need to check your case fans...as in make sure they are blowing correctly...clean out all of the dust in the case....Check to see what temps you are experiencing with coretemp or speedfan...If it is a temp problem then you may need to change the TIM and reseat the HSF...let me know what temps you are getting at idle and load.

whenever i play games the cpu usage goes to 100 % ,and tends to even cross that
my idle cpu temperature is 50-55 c
my cpu temperature at load is 105-110 c ,and whenever my cpu gets overheated it sirens like a mad machine
as per your reccomendations i have cleaned all the fans properly nad even checked that they are working properly
but the problem still resists
beside this i am unable to understand these keywords "change the TIM and reseat the HSF" in your above statement.

TIM= Thermal Interface Material i.e. Thermal Paste

HSF = Heat Sink and Fan

Are you fans running? You may have a dead fan or two causing overheating then. If you don't have a fan running on the heatsink; it will overheat.

Well something is causing the thing to heat up. If the voltage is too high in the BIOS, set it to automatic and it should be right. If the problem still persists there's something causing low airflow to the CPU or the like causing the excess heat.

look up undervolting , it could drop temps by 10-12c if done right and you have a good chip
