    The faulty GPU story is the inquirer, so take it with a grain of salt. http://www.theinquirer.net/gb/inquirer/news/2008/07/09/nvidia-g84-g86-bad

    I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter as the bit that fails isn't the the GPU but some other interconnect/other chip, and it's the thermal cycling, rather than the temperature which does it. If someone else knows what's really up It'd be interesting to hear.

    nVidia usually has a temp sensor you can access through the control center.
