    So I pulled a full on moron move over the weekend while I was at the lake. I left my phone in my truck not thinking about how hot the truck would get, well I came back and my temp warning on SetCPU had gone off and when I looked at the temp it was at 57.6C! I stuck it in front of the A/C and dropped it back down into the 20s, there hasn't seemed to be any issues yet, but is there anything that could unfold from this down the road?

    More than likely not. It's possible the processor could have gotten damaged but trust me I've gotten my phone pretty hot as well. Hooked to a charger sitting on the seat in the sun has baked the crap out of my phone and it still seems to be chugging along like normal haha. In my opinion these devices should be designed to get hot. I wouldn't say run that hot non-stop but it's a computer in a tiny case.

    Just a little info, I've gotten my home CPU quite a bit hotter than that before while overclocking on stock fan :D

    Thats 135.68 degrees Fahrenheit. Yes I would be worried. The highest mine has gotten is 40C.

    And your point is...? I've had AMD processors runner as hot as 50 something Celsius out of the box. It really depends on each core. They all run different. Now if he is talking about just the phone being that hot and it wasn't reading the CPU then maybe you might worry, since the processor would still be a lot hotter than that.

    But I have hit over 45 just charging in my car. It happens. Why worry about something unless it shows signs of issues? I'd be more worried about it getting so hot in the vehicle the humidity causes problems.

  5. Computer and mobile processors are different. Most computers, at least notebooks, shut down at around 180F.

    I think the phone's CPU should be ok. I think you'll seriously damage it at about 60C, which is pretty close. Underclock the CPU if you plan on still using it for a little bit.
