Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I installed new memory on my laptop. It was Crucial DDR4 3200 MHz. But now it overheats even more. Before there was this issue, but not so big. I just open chrome with 15 or smth tabs (before it was if I had a lot more tabs, heavy games or few hard programs) and it feels like the processor works on max speed and the laptop starts to become hot very soon. Idk if it is okay, but I'm worried about it. Maybe I need to clean the radiators, because I cleaned only fans. It seems laptop not so hot on right and left sides, but hotter at the center and from the back. But I'm worried about processor speed also. If it fine that computer run that fast only if Chrome with is opened after installing new RAM. As far as I know this RAM has to be compatible with this model and that was RAM that one of the specialists on this site recommended me. Idk if 3200 MHz can cause problems, because my laptop supports only 2666… But I read this RAM can downclock to 2666MHz. I'm confused and don't want to cause any damage to my laptop
