Should have known not to buy a British PC

Despite there being windows open at the front and back of the house, with a desk fan ensuring throughflow of air and the curtains being partially drawn to provide some shade, the ambient temperature here in my office/study/okay, back bedroom is 27°C.

All the computer's fans are fully functional but theoretically redundant, as I've taken the sides off the tower case.

Yet within ten minutes of my pressing the 'on' button, the PC is overheating and literally screaming at me (a temperature alarm?).  The chip heatsink is hotter than I'd choose to touch, merely running Firefox.  I'll have to switch off.
