Hey guys!

I'm a music producer, working on a quite strong hackintosh computer (details attached)
I'm usually working with softwares like Cubase and ProTools with no problems.
Recently I started working with After Effects, and all goes well until I try rendering. The cpu temperature goes up quickly and can reach 100c (when usually it's +-30c), when I stop rendering it immediately comes back down.

Is it a hardware issue? fan, graphic card etc? or maybe something in the configurations is wrong?

these are my computer details

Maybe the graphics card is too weak?
Check the fan speed of the graphics card with another program.
Maybe the cooling of the graphics card is out of order?

hey 123Zbyniek thanks for the reply

it is not the graphics card that is heating up... it's the CPU cores
I have a Gigabyte GeForce 210 without a fan (I use the computer for making music and need it to be silent..)
I know it's considered to be their most basic card.. but supposed to be enough for me.
anyway, I might be wrong, but I don't think the problem is with the graphic card

Please explain?

Use the TSG system information utility and post that. Here's the link.

Is this a OEM PC/Laptop or an Apple PC/Laptop? Brand/make/model.

As of right now, not knowing your exact CPU model....."DO NOT USE" After Effects anymore. If you continue to do so you may permanently damage your CPU or fry it. We need to know what the temp threshold of your CPU.

you cannot use MAC OSX on a windows PC - its license only allows you to use on Apple hardware
