The computer is blowing out hot air, and the heatsink fins are hot.
Simple test to run to help pin down the problem.
The fan running fast means overheating...........
Find where the air is exhausted from the computer and see if it blowing strong.
See if it is blowing hot air in volume or cool air.
only a little air would indicate that the heat sink is plugged with dust.
Cool air would indicate that the HeatPipe that transfer the heat from the cpu to the heatsink is bad.
Or that the mounts for the heatsink to the motherboard have broken. I've seen it on certain model Dells.
Some details on what is coming out of the fan outlet would help.
Also if you can see the heatsink fins are they hot or cold?
