I think Motherboard Monitor version 5.02 or 5.05 will do that perfectly :)

Yes, but the min time to shutdown is 10 seconds...more than enought time for a tbird to fry if something goes wrong...I want it to shutdown immeidatley!!! Reach 60C, click...powerdown....

So, set it to shut down at 55C. That's higher than you should run it anyway. Start the process at 55C and maybe it'll be done by 60C. It's the best I could come up with ;D

you can adjust the time.....up but not down.....I agree with the above post....set it for 55 or lower.....you don't want it to go that high anyway!

I think you can set the BIOS to shut the computer down at a certain temperature, but perhaps that feature is not included with all motherboards.
