Ops. Forgot. Also, Volume Leveling (in the above image) can add time to mass additions. This is a process where the music is analyzed for a loudness index so songs play at similar levels.

Hey guys. It was the indexing that was causing the CPU to run hot. I let the laptop sit for 4-5 hours, and I came back to it running ice cold again.

Thank you for the help!
