Is it possible to tell how hot my CPU is?
Yes you can. Look for third party applications on the net measures the temperature of your CPU. Try the everest, i have tried it before and it gives me accurate figures as for me.

There is also another way of telling how hot is your cpu through your BIOS, there is an option there that you can check your cpu temperature. you can also set there the maximum temperature that it could reach and put your system to hibernate to cool off. Usually at 90 degrees celsius it would be the at it's hottest rate already. cpu temperature also depends on type and your home temperature.
