Is there a way to have a video card stop hashing if a temperature get's really high?

It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

Yes.

That was not helpful at all.

Since it's linux, find a program that will monitor the hardware temperatures (there are numerous ones out there). Then make a shell script and find the temperature output by executing this program with whichever arguments you want. Then, take that output and use a conditional statement to kill your miner processes and spit out an error message if the temp exceeds your desired Tmax. Run this script on a constant loop (using "while true") or with a cron set to every minute.

I'm not at home right now, and unfortunately that means I don't have enough time to lay all this out or even draft anything...but if you've done a shell script before this should be fairly easy.

I answered the question, he didn't ask for examples.

I'd be happy to write one, need:
     Command to check temp of each card, sample output
     Command to run miner for each card
     Output of 'ps ax' while miners running

Sorry, you are technically correct. I just don't think he had a yes/no in mind. He may be thinking there's a script already out there just ready for him to run. In most cases people just write these themselves.

This -> https://github.com/jsidhu/Bitcoin-Miner-Script/blob/master/start_miner_x.sh script
has a part in it that shuts down gpu at certain temperature (starting around line ~138)
So you can look there how it can be done Smiley
