Computer getting really hot

Lately my computer has been getting really hot. Like, so hot that placing my hand on the case right on top of the PSU is painful. It's hot to the touch even when the room is at >20C. I reached around to the back and I can't feel any exhaust coming from the back of the PSU.

It's been a long week and my mind is blanking. Am I going to need a new PSU?

No exhaust from power supply - fan has probably failed, You need to replace power supply or more specifically the fan in the power supply. I would recommend you quit using your computer to prevent damage.

You need to post temps.

this could be due to a failing psu. id say post temps but its hard for u to even turn the pc on. since the psu is not getting the hot air outide id say that the fan probably needs replacing and is blowing the hot air inside the tower causing the high temperatures. for the computers safety replace the psu

computers are a second home
