ok so I saw this a while ago as well, but couldn't responde at the time. the best course of action I can suggest is to get us all the info you can.

Fill in your system specs:
(please also list your motherboard - you can find that easily in cpu-z in mainboard tab)

Also, get CPU-Z

and GPU-z (if you have a graphics card)
GPU-Z Video card GPU Information Utility

See what the temps are that are listed in these programs It might be an issue with the gpu or a fan not being used.

Note: only do a BIOS update if you are familiar with the process. I would say the system might need a BIOS update since this issue is seen after upgrading to a new OS, you might need to update so the new OS can "talk" to your hardware correctly.

Another thing you can do in the meantime is set your power profile to quiet or office so you aren't running the system at high performance. this might allow your components to work at less power and generate less heat.
