PC overheating after using virtualisation on Windows 10

I am running 3 VMs on my Windows 10 using Hyper V. Nothing special, just running 3 different versions of Chrome for some websites I am building.
The PC gets super hot in the afternoon and I can’t work out why. The CPU usage is around 10% and the 2 fans (chassis and CPU are working OK).

I didn’t have this problem until I started using virtualisation a few months back. Not a major problem but it is roasting in the office come end of play.

Anyone else experienced overheating when running virtualisation on Windows 10?
