Just know, Nash.. that GPUs and CPUs would rather slow down and then crash the system or simply turn off than to die a horrible melting mess. :P

Modern hardware does; something old as fuck like my old geforce 9800 GT would gladly run at full throttle (and that's 'full throttle' as in 'FULL SPEED AHEAD') at 110 C and die in hell.

I once had a Geforce 9600 which did throttle down.

Any recommended, freeware, lightweight and most importantly portable programs to check my temperatures?
