    Hey everyone, Im currently doing some video converting using handbrake and I was just wondering if its ok to do this for a prolonged period of time? I have 7 movies to do, and am currently on the 3rd one. They take about 30 minutes each to complete and my cpu is currently at 84C. It fluctuates anywhere from 80C to 87C. Im just wondering if I should maybe give the cpu a break or if I can just do them all in one sitting?

    Thanks, James

    This is 2009. If your computer cannot run at 100% capacity 24/7 for a month minimum, there is something wrong with it.

    They're not human. They don't need breaks. Your heat is also fine; don't worry.

    Thanks, btw, I wasnt worried about the heat itself, I was just worried about keeping it at that heat for a prolonged period of time. But yea, I figured it would be fine, I just wanted to make sure..Thanks Again
