Working remotely on a machine that is sluggish, but has  lots of ram and a nice processor.  Is there a way to see that it's not running at 100% because of heat issues / dust or something else?

thanks!

You could load a software on there to check the temperature.

Like the following:

another one is core temp :  http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/

check also if the otherboard manufacturer does not provide it in the software utilities (Asus often has them)
