    Hi Guys

    I dunno whether my MBP is overheating, cuz when I'm converting a HD Video via Handbrake and just watching a Youtube video the temperature of my MBP is 97,98,99 Degree C

    Should I be worried??

    Cheers Hay

    that is hot, but your mac is not overheating. if it gets too hot, it automatically shuts down to prevent damage.

    You are performing a CPU intensive task, were you expecting it to run ice cold?

    It's normal.

    some might say it's too hot, but I think it's ok. Remember: Handbrake and youtube (probably Flash) put nearly 100% load on every core and it's still running fine, so no need to worry.

    It's within the safe operating temp...I don't see where the problem lies

    You most of encoded some really small files. And as said many times the OP's temps are just fine.

    what software are you using to show the temps? Because on my girlfriends late 13 istats showed some REALLY wrong (way to low) values before updating it!

    I use iStat Menus. So it's working now for your girlfriend? I don't get the problem.

    yes it's working since we reinstalled it (a new version). Maybe augustya has the same problem, because I was seeing only 60-70°C even when running Cinebench or Handbrake. As I said, it was not the computer but the program ^^
