Default What the Hell?

This morning, I found my PC unclocked back to stock.

Now, at stock, my CPU is running at 53*C Idle and 61*C Load.

If was 37*C Idle and 53*C load before...

The last thing I've done is mod the 6600GT's BIOS so that I can read the 6600GT's temps.

Have you actually felt the temperature of the system to see if it really is heating up that much, or is it possible that the drivers are becoming corrupted, intertwined, or inaccurate?

I can't type all this stuff out again, just read these threads on OC Forums and XS Forums.

OC Forums Thread,

XtremeSystems Forums Thread.

And no I haven't actually felt it. Partially because I can see no reason for the CPU to suddenly get this hot, and partially because feeling the heatsink isn't a very accurate way of telling the temps IMO.
