Default Question

Is there a certain feature on Windows XP or any program I can download that will shut down the computer if the CPU temperature goes beyond a certain degree?

That just crossed my mind.

There's a setting in the BIOS that does just that. Have a look through the motherboard for it's location and settings in the BIOS.
