    Check your motherboard manufacturer, I know the one for Asus board but I don't know any other. There are a few that do it for motherboard in general but I've found them not to be very effective.....if you’re Asus check out THIS one on their official site, you could also get it off your driver disks that came with your mobo.

    New Asus boards (like mine, A7N8X Deluxe) come with built in C.O.P. (CPU Overheating Protection).

    Well I went rooting around and came back this program called "Motherboard Monitor" I've not tried it but it looks promising. Says it can turn of your PC once your temperature goes above set thresholds.

    It appears so, if you want to use the automatic shutdown features anyways.
