Try replacing all heatsink compounds and the old cover off, point a fan at the open box test. After that you are looking at new boards, etc.

Usually it's just one part.

But that's the question. Which part? I take it you replaced thermal paste on all things such as north and south bridge chips, and so on. Sometimes you get a new tech that only does the CPU. So many other places. If this has no effect you start swapping other parts.
