I just received my HP TX2500 tablet back from laptop service (fried ATI GPU) and I need software to monitor temperatures which supports emergency system shutdown after it surpasses a specified limit.

Real Temp will work for this purpose. It has an option to add an EXE to be run as an alarm at specific (user set) temperature (for CPU or GPU). You can just add the shutdown.exe executable in C:\Windows\System32. Here's a screen shot, look where it says "Alarm EXE":

I would recommend the command line arguments shutdown.exe /t 30 so it gives you a 30 second warning before it shuts down. –  Scott Chamberlain Jun 29 '12 at 16:37
HI! real temp does not support my tx2650 processor (AMD TURION) –  Pinger Jun 30 '12 at 10:25

CoreTemp was program that i needed. I reccoment it to use on any pc/laptop. It does support AMD and Intel proccessors.
