You should make sure that the frames per seconds (FPS) don’t get too high while playing to prevent the computer from running too hot. The human eye can’t see very high FPS anyways and because of this, you should limit them.
While Sims 3 did not have the option to limit FPS in game, Sims 4 does offer this option. Also the FPS will be limited to 200 FPS at all time without you changing anything.
Start the game
Click on the three dots in the upper right corner
Click on game options
Choose the tab graphics
Check the option Vertical Sync
You can also limit FPS through your graphics card but I do not know how it works for AMD Cards and Intel Chips.
Right-click on your desktop and choose NVIDIA Control Panel
Choose Manage 3D Setting
On the right hand side, choose the tab program settings
Click on Add to add Sims 4 (if you have played lately it should be in the list of recommendations. If not, you can find it here: c:\programs(x86)\origin_games\The Sims 4\game\bin\ts4_64x.exe)
Scroll all the way down until you find vertical synchronization.
Choose ON from the list to enable vertical synchronization for Sims 4
