    104 degrees isn't a big deal, you could easily push the phone to 120 or above. Not recommended to have the battery get hotter than that.

    Are you overclocked? My X used to get around 110F. I just lowered it to "Low voltage" and now I've never seen it above 97F.

    Yeah im rooted n overclocked. I thought maybe I to many processes running in the background/hidden/secondary etc. I tried to cut some of thoae down n now my phone seems to be running slower than before. Why would low overclock stop the phone from overheating?

    Mine reached 105 yesterday, but I have a profile set to set turn it back to stock settings when it reaches greater than 104.
    Still, I killed some apps that were running and turned the brightness down. Immediately afterward it dropped down to 98, I think.
