As it turns out, I did not arbitrarily pick 150F as my threshhold -  
the normal operating temp range for this processor (Dual Core Opteron  
180 @ 2.4 Ghz)  is up to 65C, which is 149F.

For those who have asked, the motherboard is the following:
TYAN Tiger K8SSA S3850.

I do read /. - but that does not imply that I don't read anything else.
