Depends on the computer. Modern PCs have built-in temperature sensors
at lots of places in the system, but either the CPU or the disk drive
at the main ones.

Newer processors run cooler than old ones. The Intel Pentium 4 was
notoriously very hot-running, sometimes referred to as a fan-heater or
space-heater, and this is one reason it was discontinued and replaced
with the Core 2 line, and those in turn with Core i3/i5/i7.
