It matters not what the conditions are - Its a simple fact that the O/S has NO
control over the CPU temp and able to throttle it down a few clicks - No matter
your install you will see in your boot log that there is NO CPU support....and
No CPU Thermal Ladder able to assist.

Its not that it will fail when X is present - Its just simply that the O/S has
no ability to keep the CPU cool by throttling it down a few clicks...None what
so ever...It is irrelevant to make the condition fail and shut-down the PC -
Its the problem that there is NO provision from within OpenSuse to look after
this situation when present.

If you really want to reproduce it - Overclock the CPU and GPU and perform an
installation

- Remember the issue is we have no control over the CPU to avoid thermal
damage of both
