    Hi all early users of 27" iMac,

    Can I know whether the nie iMac have issues with heat dissipation when you encode the file using FCPX.

    Sometimes when I encode the file in After Effects CS6, I need to leave it overnight. So, can the new iMac take the heat ?

    no it will overheat, the back plate will melt and things near by may catch fire. Its not designed to use the latest video editing applications and requires constant supervision when encoding any kind of large file, it may be worth in investing in several large fans and have air con installed in your room ................

    I definitely would consider running an extension cord and leaving your imac outside on cold winter nights while performing this process. Put a plastic bag over it to protect it from moisture and from condensation when brought back inside while coming back up to room temp.

    Ah ah ah poor Ryan he may not have yet realized this is just light fun.

    I don't think the plastic bag against condensation will work.
