I use a VPN (pia) and download using Utorrent.. and I've noticed when it hits max speed or around... that my pc fans go wild.

when I look at task manager utorrent is at 70% cpu and power useage is very high.

Is this to be expected with high download speeds ? I don't mind it if its a small file... but if its something that's going to take longer than 5 minutes I worry about the pc being damaged with such high fan speeds trying to control what I imagine is overheating ?

Update your post to include full system hardware specs.

What download speeds are you getting?

Are you able to monitor fan speeds and system temperatures?

Watch both to ensure that all stay within the recommended manufacturer specs.

Disable unnecessary background tasks to reduce overall system load.
