.....and to the addiction:eek:

Looks like you were using an older BIOS version that still had the HALT-ON-IDLE active. Bsically what this does is to dercrease the amount of voltage to your CPU for "true idle". The newer updates starting with the 3R & up had this part disabled to promote stability when running at higher clockspeeds. A search in our Cooling & AMD CPUs forums will shows a few threads regarding this new feature but there is a fix for it.
Thanks for the information. I don't think it is a problem I was just wondering why.
