      Write a cron job to shutdown during your usual sleep window iff you havent executed any commands in the last ~15-60 mins prior to job execution. Repeat execution every ~15-60 mins during your usual sleep window.

        thats if you go from extreme hot to cold. the only way this can happen is if you plug out your pc mid game. if you use your pc like normal, the fans will equalize the temperature rather than do a sudden drop.

          Not even that, in those cases the minimum the components can go is room ambient temperature. Damages occurs if the temperature suddenly drops from hot to cold very fast (less than ~2 seconds).
