Alright, im currently decoding a dvd in handbrake, running itunes, and safari.

My computer is using 99% cpu and has 2.75gb ram available(out of 4gb).

The CPU temperature is 85C

The fans are running at 6220 rpm.

Does this all sound about right?
Should my CPU usage be 99% when im decoding a dvd, using itunes, and browsing in safari?
The available ram is of little concern to me. I just upgraded to 4gb.

Should my CPU be so warm? Isn't 85C pretty hot for a 2.4 Core2duo? What are the limits of this chip?

Seems to me like the fans are running at max

Does this all sound within normal operating levels? Is there anything that should concern me?

Thanks

Completely normal.

Handbrake will use as much CPU as there is possibly available.

The chip goes to 105C before it'll shutdown.

You have way too much time on your hand... All of that is fine. The computer will tell you if something is wrong.

I agree. Furthermore, the OP is even mutlitasking, running itunes, and Safari at the same time with "resource hog" Handbrake.

Automatic shutdown/kernel panic/warning of sorts...
