Psensor is a graphical hardware temperature monitor for Linux.
It can monitor:
the temperature of the motherboard and CPU sensors (using lm-sensors).
the temperature of the NVidia GPUs (using XNVCtrl).
the temperature of the Hard Disk Drives (using hddtemp).
the rotation speed of the fans (using lm-sensors)
First step is to install lm-sensors:
sudo apt-get install lm-sensors
Overheating may become serious enough to cause permanent damage on your hardware. So watch out for any overheating issue in your system. Even better, have temperature monitoring system in place, so that you will be alerted if system temperature suddenly goes up. This tutorial describes how to monitor system temperature on Linux.

1. My laptop shuts itself down, which I guess is due to high CPU temperature. I want to confirm this by looking at some system log file that records the reason that the system shuts itself down. Is there any such syslog file? Where is it stored?
I wonder why when I am using Ubuntu, my laptop temperature increases. It's around 62 degrees or less. I am already using Jupiter and have set it to power saving mode but if I use maximum performance the temperature can reach 70 degrees or more.
