If you're using Motherboard Monitor, you can get ShutdownNow (there are links in the utilites section on the front page) and that'll work for that.

Your temps are fine, even if you're using the in-socket thermistor.

The fan direction depends on the heatsink design...most are designed for blowing on the the heatsink...but there are a few that suck. The ones that suck are going to have a shroud with them.

By far the easiest and best performing monitoring system is MotherBoard Probe. This thing has everything you need minus the Bull of MBM. It has a critical alert that lets you terminate a program or shut down your system at pre set temps that you enter. You can monitor everything from your tool bar as well. A 5 year old could use it.....and it works like a dream.........http://web.bham.ac.uk/jst829/mbprobe/

Open up the properties and select "Tasks". It gives you options for what you want to happen on Warning and on Critical depending on the temperatures you select. Underneath Critical it allows you to choose your computer to do nothing, suspend or shut down. Let me know if you need any more help.

Did you know that after 2 weeks ShutDown now will open a dialog asking you to register, and will not shut down your PC until you close it?

Try this. In MBM it asks what prog to run when an alarm sounds. Type in Shutdown.exe and in the string type in '-s -f -t 05'

That will force all open apps to close, and turn off the pc after a 5 sec delay. Remove the '-t 05' to kill the delay.

Or better yet, open a command prompt, type in SHUTDOWN and press enter. It will give you all the options and what they do.

Welcome to the forums, and excellent point! One thing that I have noticed, however, is that on my computer, if I use the built-in shutdown, it only shuts down to the "it is now safe to turn off your PC", although that screen never shows (or stays put) for my PC in normal operation.

I ended up finding an executable (which I renamed to shutdown1.exe) that works just fine.

If you all like, I can provide a zipped download of that proggy and a sample bat file. (I make mine go to hibernation instead, so I can resume my work when I come back.)
