today when i installed my fan speed controller that i made, i also started to clean up my wires a bit more, some being the ide cables. the hard drive one was kinda hard to move around and got stuck a few times but i finally got it moved out of the way of my intake fans. after botting up the first time i got the message saying that ntldr was missing so i though resetting the cmos might help, it didnt and after a few minutes of inspecting the insides of teh computer i realized it was the ide cable that was bad and replaced it with a longer one i had lying around. Now windows boots fine but my temps have become higher. Im not to certain what happened. I thought maybe something happened to the heatsync but i looked at it fan is running (all fans are running) and i tried cleanign it off and putting on new arctic silver but same temps ars before. they are at 49c right now. I used to have nice temps around 35idle. I looked in the bios but could not find any settings different from before i reset the cmos, so my only idea is that for some reason it has changed my cpu voltage, which i cannot change from the bios. i do not have any options.
is 1.76v normal for my processor? its thoroughbred core athlon xp 2200+. This is all so wierd, it doesnt make sense how my temps could have gotten so much higher, all of my fans are running exactly how they were before so this has nothing to do with my speed controller. any ideas?
