You can use the Throttle= option in prime.txt to lower the percentage of time mprime runs which lowers the temperature. You can test how low you need to go while watching the CPU temperature.

From undoc.txt
If you are running on a laptop or in a hot room and you want to slow the
program down to reduce heat, then you can add this line to prime.txt:
where n is the percentage of time the program should run. For example,
Throttle=40 means the program will run 40% and be idle 60% of the time.
