Upgrading computer - HELP

Hey there, i currently have a packard bell imedia A3317:

Packard Bell iMedia A3317 review - PC Advisor

I have upgraded the PSU to a 550W and the graphics card to a AMD Sapphire HD 4830

However my computer is incredibly loud, and it gets so hot that it burns to touch, and any usbs that i put in a port get extremely hot that they burn your finger if you touch the metal. I am looking to upgrade my case and was wondering if they would be compatible with my setup?

I was looking at purchasing this case: CiT Neptune Black Midi Tower Gaming Case - - CP-626 BLUE - CCL Computers

along with 1x of these fans : Cooler Master SickleFlow (120mm) LED Case Fan (Blue) - R4-L2R-20AC-GP - CCL Computers

Would this be ok for my setup? I may upgrade my GPU , CPU , And motherboard in the future, however i'm not sure because of university coming up.

Any help appreciated

That is not normal!

I recommend you to immediately stop using your machine. NO computer should get that Hot! Otherwise it will end up like him ----->

Seriously though, discontinue use. Your case looks like it has plenty of airflow.....You might want to consider water cooling. Your case supports it.

When is the last time you cleaned your pc?

Where is the computer located? The temperature in the room affects things too. If you keep using your computer, you might fry the parts and make them unusable. If your system is getting that Hot, your parts may already be damaged.

Does it get this Hot as soon as you turn it on? Or after a while? If the system is not loud at first, quickly download this below and check your temperature. Tell us what the temperature is. But if your system gets loud and really hot immediately, just leave it off.

Get a took like core temp and check your cpu temp.
