    I am running distributed computing software on my MacBook. If I have it set to the highest work setting, both processors work 100% of available power. I noticed my CPU A temp gets up to 190. If I run this for a large part of the day can this damage my computer? What is a good temp to maintain?

    It's not good, but since you're running it 100% CPU all the time that's what happens. Just a heads up it will drastically shorten you processor life.
