    I was just adding some Quicklook plugins when my temps started to soar. I have restarted, repaired permissions, removed said plugins, and tried other accounts. Nothing is lowering the temps.

    Weird thing is is Activity Monitor is showing NOTHING using the processor nearly enough to jump my temps to 85 C with nothing running.

    I'm "controlling" the issue for now by ramping my fans to full speed. Even with this I am hovering around 70 C...a good 10-15 C above what I am normally at (and was at 30 minutes ago).
    *Note: Normally running fans at 6000rpm would give me temps in the mid to low 40 C range

    What is going on? Is there anything I can do? What else to try?

    HELP!

    Could be the issue, but I don't think it could be.

    Reasons:

    - Didn't happen until 3:30 am CDT
    - SystemUIServer is not eating CPU

    Could be related, but not the same issue.

    Also noticing that even though it is reading a unusually high temp, it doesn't feel that hot.
