    I have finally been putting my mac pro through the paces and started ripping/converting some movies for the AppleTV but was astounded that the heat is getting hot, 50+ celcius in fact. The fans do remain more or less the same, so is this good?

    Using Visual Hub right now. I may schedule it to run a few hours once I've ripped enough movies to see how high it can get.

    As long as you don't exceed 62 degrees celcius, you are in the safe zone.

    However, I would get some AS5, and apply it on the CPUs;)

    I am not ripping apart the Mac Pro to apply thermal paste; I'm sure Apple has ample, or, enough there. My MBP has hit 70 celcius, haha!

    "Ample" is a bad thing.

    You need JUST ENOUGH. A VERY VERY thin layer is what is desired.

    Anyways, make sure the Penryn Xeons don't exceed 62 C;)
