I would like to know who controls the process of system shutdown when
the CPU overheats ? Is it the CPU that shuts down itself when it overheats or
is the BIOS that commands the shutdown process or perhaps a temperature
monitoring sensor or perhaps another located near the CPU ? I am running a Pentium 4 CPU
running at stock 2.53GHz with a P4B533 motherboard.
I don't have any issues with my configuration right now but wanted to know how this scenario works ?
Thanks in advance
