Voltage dropping to 0.00? - Page 2

Yeah, that's what I figured. Either that or a bad PSU. I hooked up another PSU (powering the HDD's, CD/DVD drive and some of the fans) and its doing the same thing.

Moving on to a more reliable temp/voltage program.

If the CPU could pull voltage down to 0V, it would have 0.000 Ω of resistance (give or take, 5%?). That said, current increases as resistance goes down, and if it were the case, your PSU would either hit OCP and shut down, or catch fire. Or blow the circuit breaker.

(ditch that software)

Lol, I got a good one for you guys.

I have 2 HDD's (both IDE) in my computer. The primary drive is the quickest, while the secondary is slower and just used for storage and backing stuff up. I was doing some benchmarks and what not, and found my primary drive was about 50% slower than my secondary drive.....

I've had this issue in the past, which turned out to be a bad IDE cable. No biggie, so I swap out the IDE cable with a known good one and re-try the test. The new cable didn't fix the slow HDD and I also noticed I could not overclock to my usual settings. I quickly swapped back out the IDE cable with the one that was in there originally.
I get back into windows and still cannot overclock to my usual settings....

- What would cause a drive to just all of the sudden slow down to half its speed?
- How would an IDE cable effect overclock...? Nothing was changed in the bios, and I've checked several times for connectivity issues.

Wow, well the overclocking normal again... HDD is still slow tho.
