    I am converting my video library (that is currently all .avi files to .mp4 files) and am using Handbrake to do this for me.

    Each video/tv show takes a WHILE (1-1.5hrs) to convert, and also has both my processors running at 100% the whole time!

    If plan on running many many of these jobs...but am wondering if any part of this process (specifically having the processors at 100% for extended periods of time) is bad for the computer in any way? Should I do something different?

    Thanks,

    Alex

    Nope, it should be able to withstand it perfectly fine.

    Suggest you install smcfancontrol to ramp up your fans to help keep it cool. I ramp mine up while using handbrake or video editing. My settings are around 900 rpm's. Works great.
