Windows 7: Windows Media Center causing high CPU temps...

Windows Media Center causing high CPU temps...

I am having thermal problems when I watch TV in Windows Media Center. The core temps go up to between 56 to 59 degrees C. Normally before I bring up Media Center the temps are around 26 to 29 degrees C.

My HP PC has an AMD FX-6120 6 Core CPU with 10GB DDR3 RAM. The CPU usage is normally around 2 to 6 percent with 4 programs running on the taskbar. What is causing this sudden increase in core temps?

Video rendering can be intensive, you might want to look at a third part cooler for your cpu, or upgrading your video card. Your temps are safe, just trying to offer a way to lower them.
