I wouldn't use Inkey$ for reading a file, but in case the debugger is bothering you, you can turn it off and on for specific blocks of source code. The commands are Runerrsoff/Runerrson.

I run my 600 with Furia for days on end. The heat sink is already enormous. Don't see why you would need an additional fan unless the new batch has got CPUs with lower tolerances.
