I am running Cataline 10.15.7 on a Late 2012 MacMini. Today it black-screened and then hung, requiring a force restart.

I noticed the body of the machine was pretty hot and wondered if this might be a factor. After restarting the fan came on full-blast for a few minutes but hadn't been audible before the crash. I hadn't been using the Mac for anything heavy duty.

Can I easily view temperature and fan status using inbuilt apps? Ideally I'd like to be warned if values indicate a problem since I don't know what values are OK.

I would rather not use command-line, if a visual monitor is provided.
