    Everyone, I know there was a discussion of using a temp monitor app back when Taz had kernels that could access it, but now that BB 1.0 uses BeKit is there an app that can monitor cpu temp again?

    I think setCPU monitors battery temp which I guess is ok, but it's not perfect. Is there another program that monitors battery temp (if CPU temp not available) without using setCPU?

    Temp Monitor is the app of choice.

    Thanks, guys. I purchased the full version.

    So should I worry about temps on the CPU or the battery more so? Seems like battery temp is always much higher (for example, 91F vs 75F right now).

    If you take off your battery cover, you'll see that the battery is rated up to 60C.

    The CPU is rated up to 75C.

    I don't think you'll ever come close to hitting these temps on either, but definitely CPU temp is the one to keep an eye on (it fluctuates much more, and high temps could mean that you should turn down your OC)
