- Did it always overheat? When did this start happening?
- What program are you getting the 95c temp from? Is it the cpu it is reading?
- Is this is a custom build or a Dell/HP?

This system looks at least 3 or 4 years old. Open it up and find the fans and see if any of them are dead when the computer is on. If that's the case they may need replacing. And if it's the cpu fan that's dead, it definitely needs replacing. You might also need to blow a lot of dust out of there as well.

Yes it always overheated(right after building the system.
- What program are you getting the 95c temp from? Is it the cpu it is reading?
The program i am using is speedfan and 95c is the System temp.
- Is this is a custom build or a Dell/HP?
Yeah that is a custom built system.

All of fans are working finely and there is no dust in my pc.

Does the motherboard have a passive chip set cooler (no fan)? If so maybe increasing airflow in your case will help it cool better, one fan in front for intake and another one high in the back for exhaust is minimum recommended.
What is your CPU temp like?
