old setup was:
KN8 SLI
8800GT SC 512mb
amd 64bit 3200+ (2ghz)
2gb ddr ram
only one complaint about new system, the e8400 temps. Bios says 40c, core temp shows 41c, everest doesnt move from 23c. What temps are right... ithought this was supposed to run cooler cuz its 45nm... bios update eneded? anyone recommend cpu temp monitor programs? how do i update bios? can i use a flash drive?
