Hey everyone...

So today while i was trying to download an app, my cpu temperature became 63C (145F).

I was wondering if this temp is even possible and what the temperature the phone is set to turn itself off at.

EDIT: Moto Atrix btw, tegra2 processor

I'm not sure about a mobile processor, but a desktop processor can well above 70, 80, or even 90 under heavy load.

63C sounds wayyy too high for a low voltage/power mobile cpu. Then again its hard to say, as the mobile chips are passively cooled.

I was able to achieve overheat at a balmy 131... I was driving in my car, it was charging and running navigation/trapster/iheartradio... I also live in Florida.

56 is normal "hot" for me.

thats your battery though, i am talking about processor.

I wopuld assume that this temperature is damaging to phone itself, i just wonder what the overheat level for the nvidia tegra2 is.

hmmm, still very intrigued. part of me wants to runn my phone as hot as it can till it over heats and reboots, and part of me is saying im a dumba** for even thinking of that, lol.

EDIT: just wanted to say im running greyblur, if that affects anything at all, lol.

I probably know more for hardware than software, don't feel bad, lol
But, actually, overheat status isn't true overheat function. When there is a true overheat, the phone either turns off or reboots itself. When the battery becomes too hot, the processor ignores that in most cases, while if the processor itself gets hot, it shuts itself down.

Yay, my first true member post, not junior anymore!!!! hahaha

I am also getting these high tempuratures on my cpu and not my battery.
My idle tempurature lowest was 35C and averages 55C and my highest was 70C and averages 65C. I really need help on how to fix this. My battery temp is around 40C

I set up a SetCPU profile so that if the CPU temp reaches 60C, it will max out the processor at 750 Mhz. For me, it pretty much cools off instantly. You may want to set yours lower. It doesn't reach that level often.

I've started a thread early today regarding the atrix's heat issues. Soon as I started playing games on my Atrix I got pretty scared with the temperature I felt on the exterior, and more scared after using temp. monitor apps.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1249757

The idea is to mod the phone to help dissipating heat. Besides undervolting with setcpu I guess there isnt much that can be done at software level to reduce the main chip's heat.
The ideas are still being formulated. I opened the thread so I could get some help and suggestion from other atrix owners, to have a good idea of what to do when I finally open my phone
If anyone wants to try it or have any ideas, please comment there!
