Hi Matthew,

In the past, the IBM servers had a Temprature-Check indication on the machine console,
If it would be possible I expected a QPROCTEMP as System value, but there isn't a value like that.
QTEMP exists, but not as temprature indication :-)

But it seems that there are some system messages for that purpose: (source itknowledgeexchange)
Message Sev Text 
CPPA554 0 Critical logic overtemperature 
CPPA581 0 MCM running over temperature 
CPPA582 0 Airflow loss in MCM subsystem resulting in over-temperature
CPPA584 0 Processor over-temperature detected 
CPPA888 0 Ambient room temperature limit exceeded 
CPPC00E 70 Operating voltage or temperature range limits exceede . . .
CPPEA60 99 *Attention* Optimal environmental temperature exceeded. 
CPPEA61 40 Optimal environmental temperature restored. 
CPPEA62 99 *Attention* Processor temperature exceeded. 
CPPEA63 40 Processor temperature no longer exceeded. 
CPP0554 70 Critical logic overtemperature
