After upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and installing all updates including drivers and Bios the PC fan runs continuously with nothing running.
Check all resources. memory CPU and hard drive utilisation are all low.

Have you updated the BIOS to the latest version? I've got a Z420 with Windows 10 on it with no issues with the fans.
Here's the link to the BIOS:

That's a massive difference. do you own an air compressor or know someone that does? I would suggest pulling the side off, and blasting it with an air compressor gun. That's the best & easiest way IMO.
If you don't then REMOVE all fans + the CPU heatsink from the case, give them a THOROUGH clean with a paintbrush and air can. clean the old thermal paste off (best with IPA) then re-apply new thermal paste to the cpu.
Also make sure all the holes / vents in the case are clear of dust.
This should also help.
