94*C is 6 degrees away from the temperature that water begins to boil at. No offence dude, but thats hot. I'll enable temp. logging and see what I get. Checking it during gameplay is just as good. My fan is set at 100% now and I got no hum. And I have contacted Sparkle. Turns out that they're very crappy at everything. They don't have updated drivers on their site and they offer next to no customer support, only to Taiwan, there base of ops. And returns/exchanges are pretty much a thing pf the past now.
