It's only been three hours since you've asked in your thread.
Anyway, that's likely due to Intel SpeedStep and/or C1E. In my BIOS, these are called "CPU EIST Function", and "CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E)".
The components are only a little dusty but it's pretty dusty at the bottom of the case. Guess I'll get that done while I'm at it, have to open my case and pop in my brother's card to unlock it too so, meh.
Yeaahhh 3 hours seems like a long time to me >__< girls are impatient. Anyways I'll have to check out that "function" in my BIOS. Thanks for all the help so far, I'll probably make a new thread about my CPU's OC since I'm such a worryrat about instability and heat and everything! Then when I unlock and OC my GPU I'll post about it in this thread ;D Brb yummy spaghetti dinner time with the family calls.
