Hi all,

I took my SATA HDD out of my windows 7 pc and plugged it into my pc at work so that my friend could download some files from the HDD over the network.
My work pc has a completely different hardware configuration but Windows managed to install all the necessary drivers (display drivers,network drivers I assume) without any configuration needed from my side..
After returning the SATA HDD into my home pc,it seems that my CPU is overheating.!!Although I dont understand how this can be...Maybe I must check in my bios if I can see any settings that look unusual...
Ive got some system info.. can anyone tell me if these voltages are okay..I can see my CPU temp is very high but Im uneducated with regards to voltages...Theres a table,way,way down..

When you were in there unplugging/replacing the HDD, did you maybe accidentally unplug one of the fans?

Only a case fan...but I since plugged it back in..didn't make much difference...I reinstalled the Nvidia drivers too that didn't help...
Googling suggests I try reseat the CPU/HSF, will borrow some thermal paste and try that soon..

My cpu fan went bad a few months ago. it just seemed to have a hard time starting, and would never really get up to speed. I started having overheat issues.

Went to Microcenter, bought a new fan, and they installed it free.

Remember to read the instructions on the thermal paste. You want a very, very thin layer. You should almost be able to read through the paste.

I think I read somewhere a drop about the size of a grain of rice will do...Think I should get a copper HSF too.. I still have the standard aluminium one..

If you haven't done it yet, i'd suggest you cancel that invasive approach. My experience with this was it had no effect. In my case the overheating/excess fan noise went away after a few days. Can you try formating your pc first?
