    Hi,
    I have just now dled the folding@home s/w to run on my beige g3...but occording to "Temperature Monitor" it is now 44 degrees C, when it normaly runs below 36. Think I should be concerned?

    Not really. Most CPUs can handle temperatures above 60 degrees C.

    Ya i just changed it to faregnheit and right after bootup it said 100 degrees F....so ya.... Probly just a mixture of humidity and heat from outside and even the fact that my computer is not officialy supported for accurate readings.

    If you're running f@h whenever the computer is idle, then you would see higher temperatures since the processor doesn't get to sit there. Doesn't sound excessive, though.
