I've seen a lot of posts about how the maximum temperature of a CPU is somewhere around 100°C, and then the computer will shut down to prevent damage. But what would happen if all of the fans for a computer were turned off, and all hardware and software temperature interlocks were defeated? How would the computer's performance change as the temperature rose? I know people joke about being wary of reaching the melting point of aluminum (for some Macs), but would the temperature ever get that high?
To clarify, I'm looking for a degree-by-degree timeline of what the temperature effects would be on a running computer.
Specifically, what would happen to, say, a new MacBook Pro?
