    Picked up a cheap 2012 2.5ghz Dual Core Mac Mini the other day and just ran a 20 minute video encode that pegged the CPU to max the whole time and the hottest it got was 87c and the fans never went over 1800rpm the whole time. The fans not increasing during this process is a first for any mac I've had besides the Mac Pro. Impressive.

    I think the system can throttle itself so the CPU doesn't overheat. Nice machine!

    Enjoy

    I've got the 2012 2.5 too and on blue ray handbreak for 4 hours it doesn't go over 90c at 1900rpm. It's a work horse. :)

    Newer Macs have less dust in the fans and the case, so that the cooling is usually much better. Newer CPUs are also more efficient than older CPUs.
