    Holy crap, I just started using Handbreak on my new MBP. Yes, encoding videos is a lot faster than my old MBP 2009, but also a lot louder. The fans got up to 6200 rpm. If is normal???

    Yes, it's quite normal when temps are sustained at a higher level for some time. Temps will climb as demands on the CPU/GPU increase. There's nothing to worry about.

    I only changed the average bibrate to 3600. An episode of Friends, that is almost 30 mins, to 6 minutes to encode, where my 2009 Macbook Pro took 12 minutes.

    Handbrake (as in "brake" - slowing something down - , not as in "break" - separate something into pieces) is CPU intensive, and the more one uses CPU, the more power is drawn, and the more power is drawn, the more heat is produced and emitted, and as more heat is emitted, the fans have to spin faster to properly get rid of the heat. As the fans spin faster, they produce more audible noise, thus Handbrake is noise on a notebook.
