the same prob occurs, when i plug in any usb2.0 device.
tried it with an epson 1670 photo usb2.0 scanner, with a 6 in 1 card reader and an external usb2.0 harddrive.
when connected, diode temp rises to 52°C, after disconnecting temp falls to 38 - 39°C.
offset 6F is default at 9F.
just wanted to share this.
