Might be time to open up the PC (while disconnected from the mains supply - obviously) and give it a good clean out, removing the clogged dust.

I see what you mean. I only use 'towers' as easier to maintain. Use something like SpeedFan to check your temperatures while you're using the PC. If it's getting hot then take it to a professional to check it out and cleaned if needed.
