We review the most; recent, measurements of the top quark mass using data collected by the CDF experiment at the Tevatron 1.96 TeV p (p) over bar collider. The mass measurements are performed in all main decay modes of the produced t (t) over bar pairs using integrated luminosities up to 2fb(-1). In most channels the total uncertainty is dominated by systematic effects, most, of which are Currently being revised. The, precise measurement of the top quark mass is one of the Tevatron's main and long lasting legacies. Besides serving as a benchmark measurement; at the LHC collider, it will serve as a consistency check of the Standard Model in case a neutral CP even Higgs boson is found, either at the Tevatron or at the LHC.
