My System Specs

Default back on track...

Strange thing happened this morning (or not?) I booted up, idle still at 38-39'C after 15 minutes. I tried sandra benchmark at 100%. (arithmetic+multimedia) It wouldn't even run 1 benchmark. 50%, nada. I upped the ram voltage to 2.1 and cpu to 1.4125. After bootup, idle speed dropped to 32-34'C almost immediately. Just out of curiosity I upped the ram and fsb to 865mhz , re-installed my side case fan and ran sandra again. VOILA! I let it run for a few hours and max temp was no higher than 55'. I thought upping the voltage would increase the cpu temp. Did I just electrocute a gremlin or something? Anyway, it's off to bed and let memtest do it's thing.
