Xbox 360 keeps overheating, two red rings.

Recently my Xbox has been turning itself off, and after showing the two red rings. This never happened before but lately it has been doing this after I have playing a game for only a short amount of time. It has happened while using the YouTube app, but only after it has been on for a very long time. I managed to stop this happening for a while after I hoovered all the vents and openings on the console, unfortunately this does not work anymore. Again, this only happens when playing a game. I just want to know if there is any solution apart from getting it repaired. The area around the console is relatively clear, though it is about a metre away from a radiator and my room tends to be quite hot. But as I said, this never happened before and my xbox has been in the same position for quite a long time. Any help would be appreciated.
