You might want to verify that the mobo is really overheating using either
another OS &/or temperature probes.  The NetBSD ACPI temp sensor stuff is
known to read bogus critical temp spikes on certain hardware and the default
/etc/powerd/scripts have the system shutdown when those are detected.  I've
got an old HP mini-tower system that that happens to; once I realized there
was no over-heating going on I editted /etc/powerd/scripts/sensor_temperature
to do nothing for the "critical" case.
