I think this sounds like some sort of hardware failure.  It might be
terminal (CPU or motherboard failing) or it might be that a heatsink or
fan is getting clogged and failing to cool properly.  You can probably
read some of the temperature sensors (lm-sensors package), though it's
not always obvious which is where and what a reasonable temperature
