    That's really weird. I was just looking for information on the same thing - I was messing around comparing how smooth web pages were on different browsers and the processor got up to 60C/140F.

    This is what I found in this thread: http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-droid/46022-what-should-cpu-temp.html

    Posted by droidpcguru:
    I'm not sure where he got this information.

    Also someone else in the thread said the battery should not go above 60C. The battery is usually a lot cooler than the cpu though.

    I live in southern California. When using the car dock in my windshield (with the sun beating down on it) and navigation, the temperature frequently gets up to mid to high 50s. Set CPU is at 1200mhz and set to drop to 550mhz when the battery hits 44C. I wish you could make the setCPU temp profile based on CPU temperature rather than battery.

    I think these chips are probably a lot more robust than people think.

    My car dock heats up nicely as well in the sun.
    I have my profile set to clock from 1100 to 800 when plugged in (on the car dock it's usually plugged in)

    I'm about here too, Oc'd at 900. I have setcpu failsafe at >50 it dials it down to 550 just to be safe. I also saw that temp when playing robo defense.

    My info came from about 2 hours of research into the official documents for the TI OMAP3430 processor, which is of course the CPU in our Droids. All the info that I found that is relevant to our situation is in that thread and I believe another that I linked to in there:)

    Highest mine got was 42. Take in mind I'm living in NYC and temps here are about 60-80 right now.

    BB V1 Leaked runs really cool with the kernel it comes with. loving it.

    You've mixed Celsius and Fahrenheit there, a bit confusing. There's no way your Droid is running cooler than the ambient air temperature lol.
