I think the picture speaks for itself... getting majorly worried here... Kinda contemplating whether or not I shoulda hackhand the computer guy I took it to before, thinking he probably didnt apply proper thermal paste... My pc specs are Windows 7 Ultimate

Also I dont know if this makes any difference but once the cenverting was finished cpu temp dropped to 30 degrees almost immediately, is it possible that a bios change might be manditory?

Unsure about your hardware, and thermal paste maybe not being used. But convertxtodvd pushes your system to the limit if you let it there are controls to slow down the hardware usage of convertxtodvd. It is certainly running hotter then it should be. Check and make sure all your fans are working. Maybe someone one left something unhooked, you never know. Also those programs that tell you your core temp. from my understand are just guess's, found online people saying there where easily off by 30 - 40 degrees.
