    I'm rooted, Froyo, 1100 kernal and I think finally I have evrything up to snuff.

    I do notice a slight increase in heat and just wondered how hot it could get without me worrying about it.

    Thanks all!

    I was told no more than 140 degrees Fahrenheit. My 1.1 ghz overclocked froyo ranges from 80-105.

    I would imagine it depends on where you're monitoring the temps. The battery and CPU (and radio, for that matter, though I have no idea if there is a sensor there or anything) probably have different temperature thresholds. FWIW, I have my SetCPU failsafe profile set to trigger at like 52 C (which, if my math isn't retarded, is like 125 F).

    Also, what's up with so much temp reporting in F on these phones? I have nothing against Fahrenheit, but computer temps are always reported in C. Someone tells me their phone is running at 120-130 degrees and my initial reaction is always a bit extreme.

    i always exited everything and turned the screen off to let it cool down for 5-10 minutes when it hit 45 C...i tried not to let it get over 40 C tho. i wish p3 kernels had cpu temp reporting (they dont, if he says so its a lie) i have to go by feel and battery temp now.

    Battery temp is the important one. The CPU is rated to something crazy like 70C, but if you get the battery much over 45-50C, its likely to explode.
