OK, so I was having weird sound problems in Winamp after I got my RMA'd board.

So, I decide to install 2.45. Didn't fix it, messed up my USB controller, but I dealt with it (and figured out how to fix the sound--an option in Winamp, surprise surprise--last time, it was memory timings, figured it might be drivers, but I needed to create a DirectSound buffer and everything was peachy. weird.).

But.

Old temps--between 38-42.

New temps--30-34.

HUH?

And note--it's not "Oh, the driver messed with temp readings." I watched it drop from 38 after I installed the drivers down to 32 now, and that's including a good bit of SWG. Weird.

ohhhhhhhhhhh. update the temp panel thing or check in the bios if it is still the same temps there.

OK, rebooted, shows 36 on temp program.

BIOS shows between 35 and 38 immediately after reboot.

Forced to wonder if I lost some sort of option to put the CPU in an idle state when I replaced the mobo without replacing the drivers.

I am pretty sure it was the drivers that were messing up. I did a mobo replacement and my panel kept showing 40C under all conditions. I jus updated it and everytin is fine now.

The only time you will see your temps drop is with a BIOS flash.
