I have HP 690-0034. Recently upgraded SSD from 128GB to 1TB. Chassis is now getting very hot. Do I need to upgrade cooling my cooling fan. If so, will I need to upgrade power supply? Is the new SSD simply too much?

There shouldnt be any reason a larger capacity SSD would make your PC hotter than the smaller one.
More likely, there is a process or program running in the Windows background that is causing higher cpu usage.
I would monitor the cpu temperature with a program like CPUz or Speccy. If the cpu gets hot, open the task manager and select the cpu column to show the highest running services for the cpu. IF there is one taking an unusual amount of resource, you can stop that service.
Make sure Windows is fully updated. Force it to check for updates until there are none.
Did you clean install Windows with the Media Creation Tool? IF so, you can install the HP Support Assistant and look for HP driver updates. HP Drivers link
Make sure your fans are running, that you didnt disconnect something when you replaced the SSD.
If in fact the SSD is actually getting hot itself just because its running, you might have a faulty SSD, but this would be very unusual.
Just my opinion, hope it helps.

i recently got the PC, my Chassis gets hot current with the 128GB. though i dont see notice any drop in proformance. I say try to download temp monitoring software see if its the CPU or the GPU getting hot. it shouldnt have anything to do with the SSD. monitor the proformance as well.
i think there is another SATA port, i think i may install a 2.5" sata SSD there.
