It has certainly been hot lately. I am starting to get temp warnings. The other day my processor was pushing 60 and motherboard 50.. Although the room temp is 30 celcius. I do not have any thing special like a gaming rig just a fairly standard setup built by a local pc company a few years ago. I just took the side of the case off.. will see how it goes. 

On a side note I once got a processor upto 100 - 110 celcius

My laptops get to about 60 to 70 degrees.

Have you checked all fans are running? And heatsinks and fans are not dust covered?

I have an asus mb and amd cpu. After posting this I installed amd cool and quiet, now running at more reasonable temps currently at 45 c. It seems to have lowered the cpu voltage, problem solved for now, still have the side of the case off though.

I havent looked at my temps. I have about 6 fans and water coolling. The only fan noise i hear is when i'm playing a game and the graphics card fans spin up for 30 secs or so then back to nothing.

This is the first Pc with water coolling. I wouldnt build a games PC with out it now.

My pc isn't a gaming pc although i wonder about all the pc's out there with no temperature sensors running. The only reason I knew it was getting hot is because I have a temperature gadget on the desktop, I like to know what is going on. Same with gauges in cars, I would never buy a car that has a light in replacement of an actual temperature gauge.

My pc heats up my room something fierce in summer. My i7 is over clocked to 4.6ghz and while gaming it pushes out around 60deg, and this is with a decent coolermaster hyper212+ fan. My Vapor-X 7950 will also hit 64deg during these sessions. Case has good cooling. I would love a thermometer to check the room temperature during this.

I have a HAF-X case which has great cooling, but only if the grills aren't clogged up with dust and cat hair (which they always seem to be). I have to used compressed air on it every few months otherwise I get heat related crashes during periods of stress (e.g. gaming).

Last time I blew it out, at least a thousand tonnes of dust billowed forth and blacked out the sun.

While I agree if your temp guage moves its pretty much to late something has broken. My last trackday at taupo one guy lost his engine because it took 2 laps for his oil pressure light to come on after his oil started poring out.

right now, doing not much, my phenom II quad is at 35C, it normally idles around 30-32C with cooler weather. Full tilt doing an h264 video encode it sits at 63C with the occational look in to 65C. Apparently my Nvidia GT430 is currently at 40C, never looked at what it get up to when strained.

Grab the programs icon (either from desktop or start menu and drag it into the folder called startup (which is in your start menu).  The program should now start when windows starts).

That or look in options or tools in the program it will likely have a start on startup option (I haven't used the program myself)
