    Question CPU temp 205 F using Handbrake
    My Macbook Pro records a CPU temp of 205 when using Handbrake. Should I be concerned about this?

    Nope, video encoding is a very CPU intensive process. 205 degF is about 96 degC, so while you are the high end, you should be fine as long as the temps drops back down when Handbrake is done.

    You don't want to operate for long durations at those temps..

    Handbrake is definitely one of those apps that push a computer to its limit. If someone wanted to try & work their computer hard...using Handbrake is one way to do it!
