    Please see the attached ZIP, which has my Kernel Panic log. This is the first one I have received since purchasing this computer in late 2013 brand new. I was exporting an .H264 movie file in 720P in PP CS6 when it occurred.

    I watched my CPU gauge in iStats explode, but that's pretty normal in the case of rendering. The only difference when the Kernel Panic occured, the fans blasted to full RPM's. They normally pick up in rendering, but this was definitely abnormal. Right at that moment, the system froze and restarted itself to the infamous Kernel Panic screen.

    Maybe it was just overload on the CPU and it didn't know what to do, but I render these videos weekly for my church and not sure why it decided to do it this time. Once it restarted (luckily I had just saved the file) it rendered out fine as normal.

    Any ideas?

    I really wouldn't worry about it unless it happens again. Random events like this occasionally happen, its part of IT life.

    I agree with the above.

    And next time, please don't make us waste time unpacking a 5kb ZIP file from a 10Kb file.

    I figured as much. Just wanted to make sure it wasn't the tall tell signs of early CPU failure of some sort. Much appreciated. I'll keep an eye on it.

    Um, okay. I just figured certain uploaders don't always support all file formats. I apologize for burning up your bandwidth at home.

    The point was that instead of just giving us a file we could view in the browser, we had to actively extract the file and view the file through Finder, for no apparent reason.

    Um, okay. Then I'm sorry for drawing an extra 5 seconds away from what appears to be an already busy life for you.
