You can also measure gpu and cpu temperatures using the software called PCwizard. If the cpu cores are going over 70c, or your pgu heat is over 90c, then you have a problem. If not, and this is just a one or two time deal with no adverse affects you can see, then there's probably nothing wrong here.
