Hi,
i tried to import some 1080p videos in Final Cut Pro, really fast rendering and editing, but on playback and rendering the CPU temperature (shown from istat) goes up and remains between 85 and 104° celsius...is this normal on intensive rending and CPU-tasks?

Thank you

Could be, but are you on 10.8.3? Have you done the SMC update? If yes, do an SMC reset which might help. If not, update to 10.8.3 and do the update first.

The System Management Controller (SMC) is responsible for many low-level functions on Intel-based Macs. These functions include:

Responding to presses of the power button
Responding to the display lid opening and closing on portable Macs
Battery management
Thermal management
The SMS (Sudden Motion Sensor)
Ambient light sensing
Keyboard backlighting
Status Indicator Light (SIL) management
Battery status indicator lights
Selecting an external (instead of internal) video source for some iMac displays
