Handbrake shuts down machineMy i5-460M laptop running handbrake 0.9.9 - 0.10.2 suddenly shuts down.
I had the temperature monitor up one day and noticed that the temp. quickly went from 49*C to 100*C, the fans become very noisy and then shuts down the machine.
Used cpulimit but encode goes down to around 20 fps if I want to keep the temps down below 90*C.
The fan goes into high speed mode and even though I vacuumed the vents didn't make much of a difference. I wonder if the heat sink has come off the cpu.
I will try older version of handbrake or maybe limit thread=1.
Note: The BIOS is doing the thermal shutdown (which is good) before damage to cpu occurs.
