    System Overheat shutdown

    I'm rebuilding a computer of a relative of mine that had a bad PSU and Mobo, I'm taking a guess that the system overheated and fried components, I want to find a program that can monitor the cpu and mobo temp and shut the system down if it overheats, any ideas?

    Umm, if the cpu overheats it should shut itself down as a safety feature? MBM will force the shutdown at a certain temp that you can set

    Ninja, athlons do not take care of thermal problems on their own like intel processors do

    My Athlon 2000+ shuts itself down when it overheats (about 75* C), but MBM should do what you want
