    The vast majority of modern machines have working temperature sensors;
    some just one or two (e.g. cpu and case temperature), others have a huge
    range.

    If you're unlucky and use an OS which doesn't provide access and
    monitoring of these as part of the standard installation, third-party
    software is usually available.

    Non-CPU-bound servers can often benefit from enabling power-saving
    features too (e.g. speedstep, powernow/cool'n'quiet). In some cases this
    is very simple and offers significant reduction in power consumption and
    heat generation.
