Hi. I'm using an iMac with a 2.0ghz C2D, and when I run something that uses around 90% of the processors my two cores are hot reaching around 70-80 degrees celcius.... They've never gone beyond 80 though... Is this normal/good???
QUOTE Thanks

It will shut off if it gets too hot. There are plenty of fans in there. You're running at almost full processor capacity, of course it's going to run a little hotter.
