Encoding videos making CPU run VERY hot!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Wow! I was just encoding some videos for my video iPod, if I run 'em one at a time I get about 60% CPU usage BUT if I run them 2 or more at a time my CPU is constantly at 100% load since they are both fighting for 120% of my CPU power, lol! So anyways, right now I am encoding all 3 Naked Gun movies into MPEG4 and my CPU is 66c but with my fan on low it easily goes over 73c! I just wanted to say I don't buy that whole 67.7c max temp thing, will I damage the CPU badly if I do this for about half an hour? I know its a stupid question but I just wanted to say I've got hot temps and wanted to know what I should do about it, I have the Zalman CNPS7700CU with AS5 on it.....

Processors can definitely handle more than the spec temps (see this), but it probably isn't advisable to run them too far over specs for an extended period of time. If you're planning on doing a bunch of encoding, it might be worthwhile to bump your fan speed up for the duration of the work and then switch it back down. Although you may never experience any issues with the extra 8°C or so, it's probably worthwhile to be safe than sorry.

Taeric, don't worry, I DO encode 'em with max fan speed, I was just saying that I got those temps and was kinda worried that my cooling is inadequate, I am giving this computer to my dad and he does alot of CAD and stuff and system stability is a MUST (hence RAID 1, possibly even a 4 drive array!) I haven't noticed instability yet but I hadn't ever gotten that hot either, check the screen shot

I think you will be ok for a short period of time at those temps, when I first got my 530 I knew nothing about temps and had it idling at 80 C for a week . Those temp are a little high though, you may want to look into getting some better cooling .

Meh, its my dad's problem as of next week, my new computer will have a Thermaltake Big Typhoon, the same one pandapimp has on his 3800+ Dual Core and it idles 28c and loaded 36c at stock voltage! Can't wait.

Wow. 95C load - you could fry an egg on that!

P.S. That's 203 degrees Farenheit!!!
