When I installed the new motherboard, I used the same processor that was on the old one. However, it was my first time doin all this, so once I figured out how to get the heatsink off I took the processor and installed it on the new board immediately. Was I supposed to apply some thermal paste to it before doing so? That thought just popped in my head...

If that has nothing to do with it, then I'm pretty sure I can control how much voltage the CPU is getting in the BIOS screen...I remember seein it. Would it have a serious effect on performance if I lowered that value?
