    I just loaded Folding@Home (F@H) on my 2.4 GHz uMB CE.

    Using the software Temperature Monitor, I'm running 85C+ on CPU A, 80C+ on CPU Core 1, and 79C+ on CPU Core 2, when assumingly, I'm running F@H.

    Shutting F@H off, my temperatures drop, w/CPU A= 49C, CPU Core 1= 44C, CPU Core 2= 44C.

    Are my temperatures too high, when running F@H?

    Also, how do I know if I'm running two (2) applications of F@H, one for CPU Core 1 and one for CPU Core 2?

    Are there any applications for the Mac X OS, for watching F@H on your system?

    folding home uses alot of processing power. I dont know about you, but I prefer to minimize my cpu processing power on my laptop and leave F@H to the desktops :D

    but 80C does sound quite hot but it can withstand it. I would worry around 90C

    It's not uncommon for my MacBook to hover around 90C when running SETI@home.
