    nop not at all mine works at about 85 C when under load i think yours is somewhere around that in F. And i noticed your cpu is at about 50% load give or take, thats not normal. I had this issue with my mac before a few times with 1.5 it would just boot, then fans kick in and the cpu is loaded....nothing is running, sometimes it stops by itself usually i just do a clean install and it fixes it.

    Open up Activity Monitor (Applications-->Utilities-->Activity Monitor)

    Then at the top, change the drop down menu from "My Processes" to "All Processes." You should see some process that's sucking up CPU cycles. Click on it, and stop that process. That should solve your issue.
