    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. You will not lose any data, or anything.

    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
