no, max CPU temp is more like 180-190F. it should only ever get there occasionally.

120-140F is my normal range using temperature monitor.

i have a 2Ghz coreduo macbook.

Under normal use on my 17" MBP I see about 135-140F. After a Windows session with heavy gaming I'm usually in the 150-160F range.
