Default Nothing wrong...

GIMPS software (mprime) is designed to make use of unused CPU cycles (ALL of them)...so definitely your CPU will go to 100% and the Temperature will go up and Fan will kick in high speed whenever it is running.

But only "unused" cycles as it runs at the lowest possible priority setting. The instant you want to run anything else, Prime95 will back off.

I've never used a Mac so beyond that I can add nothing more, other than it sounds like it is working EXACTLY as designed.

Good Luck
