Tempature question concerning laptop

Running Mass Effect 2 after about 1-2 hours and seeing gpu temps near 93c and the cpu temp near 92-94c, is that a safe tempature to be operating at or do I need to do something to lower it, system specs are i5-540@ 2.8ghz, Nvidia GT 435M @ 651/1305/960. Thanks in advance.

New build; CPU Fan isn't working

Just ordered a new build for a friend, he hooked everything up right, but the CPU Fan isn't spinning. We plugged the CPU Fan into another computer and it works, what could be the issue?

Continuing past the 10 day WoW trial

I really like WoW so far..I know that its been out for awhile, but I decided to actually get it.

My question is once the 10 day trial is over, can I keep paying if I pay for the monthly fee or do I have to go out and buy the retail version of the game and start for scratch?
