10 to 1 your thermal paste is shot. Before we go to far can you list your full system specs like this,

Mobo - z97 SOC force
Cpu - i5 4690k
Cooling - stock cooler
Gpu - gtx 960
Ram - 4x4gb trident X
Psu - EVGA 750 g2
Hard drive - WD 1tb blue

This will help us better understand what you are working with and how to proceed.

Oh and if you can include what you have for case fans and how they are flowing air that will help as well. Such as,

2 x 120mm front intake
1 x 140mm top exhaust
1 x 120mm rear exhaust

Ok a few more questions.

What are you using to read the temps on your system?

The 92c you are referring to is that on the gpu or cpu?

If you leave the side of the case off do the temperatures improve?

Have you checked the heatsink on the cpu and gpu for a buildup of dust that will inhibit airflow?

When was the last time the TIM was changed on the cpu and gpu?

Very well could be if the system has been together for years especially since the cpu needed redone.

Thanks man,Can u tell me how can i overclock it?

Sorry I'm not really familiar with the older hardware. Let me see if I can ping one of the other guys that is familiar with this equipment to help you out. You might get better results if you start a thread in the Intel section of the cpu forum specifically about overclocking this cpu.
