    Hi there everyone,

    I noticed that my CPU temperature rises along with fan speeds reaching very high RPM's during converting of videos. I use iSquint, since I have an iPod Touch and I like the simplicity of the software but I am worried that this increase in temperature might damage my computer in someway.

    Is there something wrong, or is there something I can do to keep it from doing this?

    This is perfectly normal behavior. Converting video is a very CPU intensive application. If you want to control your fan speeds and try to cool down better, try smcFanControl or Fan Control for Mac.

    This in no way can damage your computer.

    I use SMCFanControl when converting video and crank the fans up to 4000rpm. My MBP hasn't gotten any hotter than 70C since I got it.
