Quite recently, my late 2012 Mac Mini went from being virtually silent, to having the fan on quite hard nearly all the time, regardless what I'm doing. If I use some 3D rendering or similar then it understandably gets flat out, but if I am doing nothing at all the fan is still a constant whir. I am not using different applications to the past... basically browser and Parallels, but in my Parallels session all I run is RDP.
Chrome and related processes seem very high CPU% but I don't know if that's normal.
I'm slightly worried my CPU being flat-out risks damage and also that electrical use is high. What can I do to identify and address this issue?
