This processor is from 2007.  For something this OLD, change the thermal paste.

Make sure the cpu and case fans are working.

Blow out the cpu heatsink.

Make sure you have adequate ventilation.

No, not necessary. This is a perfectly normal and expected temperature to see when the system is under full load.
