When i had my old 200W stock PSU, my AMD processor ran hot at around 65C. As soon as i upgraded to my 850 Antec PSU, my processor ran at 35-40 C. Was the temperature affected by my low watt crappy PSU?
I agree with the fact that my old PSU sucked. It was stock 200W. I was under the assumption that low watt and high voltage would increase temperatures. I can't think of any other reason why i would drop 30C immediately. While my new Antec supply has a bigger fan and better control, i don't think that would account for 30C.
I've just always wondered why i dropped so much in temp. I used to push 75-80C under load now i barely hit 50 (keep in mind i'm on AMD processor that runs hotter than Intel).
