No idea at all what sort of computer you have, or what operating system, but you may be interested in installing/configuring something called 'lm_sensors' which can report data from the onboard hardware temp/fan/clock sensors. It needs kernel support for your particular CPU/motherboard/sensors, as well as some configuration, but it is very well documented.
If your system uses KDE, and maybe other desktop managers, look in the sysmonitor, and see if there is anything there.

Check out the excellent utility gkrellm Besides a temperature gauge, it's got many other useful monitoring tools

You need to configure Gkrell to show the hardware sensor outputs that your system is able to display. All you see in that picture is the load on the CPUs. Add displays for the other sensors, and you will have more graphs and bars.

Move the cursor onto the gkrellm app, then press F1 to open the Configuration dialogue. Under Built-ins, go to Sensors, then Temperatures.

Your CPU is running too hot ... and you are trying to cool it down with gkrellm?

How about having a good look at fans, cleaning out the dust, etc?
Besides, motherboard sensors are not a reliable source. If you are sure your CPU temperature is normal then you can disable this protection feature in the kernel, wouldn't recommend this though.
