    I downloaded a program to monitor my late 2008 unibody Macbook Pro's temperatures. Just a few minutes ago while playing music/playing an ONLINE game real briefly it warned me that my CPU temperature was too high. (167˚ F) Is that too high of a temperature? What should the "range" be?

    Thanks.

    Seems really unlikely that the game could warn you. Sounds like it was trying to sell you something like a cooler pad. To access CPU temp data you need to download a special bit of code like iStat Nano which interrogates the firmware to do this.

    Having said that 167 F is nothing. Your CPU will be happy up to 105 C 221F unless you have one specific model of CoreDuo which is only happy up to 90 C

    Safari, iTunes, and Mail.

    It wasn't the game that was warning me, it was a separate application that I downloaded.
