Default [Q] Overheating problems, cant switch back to 4.2.2

This is my first time posting in this, so please excuse me if I put this topic in the wrong place or anything.

Recently I have installed a Cyanogen rom to my phone, upgrading it to 4.4.4 kitkat. Wel, everything went well. Though, recently it has been getting really hot. I mean, before I installed the rom, I was on 4.2.2 and I never had a problem like this. I mainly use my phone for games and my phone has never gotten hot to where the screen is really hot.

I bought a new battery, didn't work. Calibrated it, didn't work. Tried a fresh install, again did not work.
I tried going back to 4.2.2 but no rom that I find works, only one to work is 4.4.2 and it still over heats.

Any advice?

If you have a micro sd card in it, turn the phone off, let everything cool down, remove the battery cover, now place your finger on the micro sd card slot and turn the phone on. If it gets really hot in about 10 seconds, remove the micro sd card. Try running the phone without the micro sd card to see if that is causing the heating issue. Could be an old micro sd card or a failing micro sd card. Be sure to use a decent speed Class 10.

Are you using a kernel that is overclocking your phone? That would be one possible cause of overheating that starts as soon as you installed a different ROM. What kernel came with it?

You could try the last stable cm build. Although, I'm running the latest nightly and am not having your issues.

Or

You could Odin back to stock and start over.

It could be a rough app running in the background.. Its happened to me a few times.. Check battery and CPU usage to make sure there are no misbehaving apps
