CPU @100%

Just hoping for some advice here.

I'm going to be using the Handbrake video encoder for a specific project over the next 30 days or so, for approximately 3-4 hours at a time.

CPU usage during those hours is 95-100% - perfectly normal for Handbrake. But I do have some concerns reference possible long term damage.

Advice online seems to differ from (paraphrasing here): "as long as your system doesn't run too hot you'll be fine" to "yes, this kind of thing will definitely shorten the life of said CPU".

I've run a few tests, and although my PC fans get slightly louder, that seems to be the worst of it. Any thoughts?
