"unbearabley hot" - sounds like your being a little dramatic about it. Im sure it can get somewhat uncomfortable - but unbearble seems to go too far. Then again, I am not you and cant say how you feel.
Yes, its normal, especially when pushing the system to its limits for five hours in a row. Don't worry about it, all 3790's do that, but some seem to say its not that noticeable and others whine about as if they were just lit on fire. I guess you fall in the middle somwhere.
Anyway, I am shocked its doesnt run 100% smooth on medium considerind some spec things I have read about hte game and the 3790. I figured, and others have said, that it should run perfectly on low and medium, run smooth on high with a some hiccups, and be crappy to play on extreme. Well, I will take your word for it and see what others say as well - at least we can all play doom 3 and Far Cry on medium/high with out any issue!
BTW - what are the specs on your machine?
