    Hey people. I've got a fast one for you.

    I have visual hub converting a whole pile of videos. Like 8 seasons of shows with 22 episodes each. It'll be running for a little while and I'm ok with that. My question is this: I've had it running for 3 or 4 hours and the fans are at 3k RPMs and the GPU diode... well look at the picture.

    Am I going to be ok leaving it like this for a while. 12+ hours?

    Is my house going to burn or should this be a pretty good stress test for an Nvida GPU?

    This is really the first time I've heard the fan hum too. That is saying something since I usually convert video... just not this many.

    Other than the converting, I'm not doing anything too computing intensive. Just some web surfing and email.

    Thanks for the advice.

    You can always install a fan control utility to lower the temperature.

    Yep, I'd download smcFanControl and bump those fans up.
