    Just got a notification through growl that I'm sitting at 160 Degrees F...

    Should I be concerned?

    160F is only about 72C, which is fairly typical for a MBP under load. I wouldn't worry too much about it; I think whatever temp app is giving you a warning needs a different threshold. (It's safe to go up to 100C, and there's thermal protection stuff that will slow the CPU down before it gets too dangerous.)
