Load Temp Suddenly Much Higher

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
A few days after installing a new PSU, my CPU seems to be a few degrees hotter at load. The odd thing is that I re-did my overclock, and I'm actually using less vcore than I was with the old PSU. If anything, my room/the weather has gotten colder, so that's not it. It used to be around 40-41C at load(folding) and 45c at load(folding and gaming). Now it's about 45C just folding, and when I game I have to flip my fans to full or it goes to 50C(Before I would just flip them to full because it's fun).

Anyone have any explanations? I'm going to add a blowhole fan up top(that should help, right?), but I'd like to know why this changed in the first place.

Also, my chipset/PWM is getting awfully hot.

How are your voltages? Are they within an acceptable range? It could just be that you're actually getting clean power. What was your old power supply like?

Well I had no proof that it was ****ty, but it was an Ultra, so I assumed I should get a new one before it exploded. My vcore is 1.612 right now. A little high, but definitely safe.
