I was converting some videos on HandBrake and the CPU temperature peaked at 106C!
Is it safe?
It is not optimal, but depending on the MacBook you have, 106° C is within parameters. If it would be unsafe, the MacBook would have shutdown itself to prevent any damage.
Modern mobile CPUs can withstand temperatures of up to 115° C, and as transcoding a video in Handbrake is CPU intensive, the temperatures you experienced are normal, though you might look into better ventilating your MacBook.
Handbrake is still transcoding the video and current temperature is at 90C. It didn't peak above 106C guess the heat management safeguards kicked in.
I guess it underclocked my CPU, Handbraking is encoding the video at a lower speed and everything seems laggier.
