Hmm, that's strange. I've never overclocked or set up overclocking. Not sure what that's about.

I'm updating my BIOS and all my drivers. I could have sworn they were all updated. I guess I forgot...

Yeah, that's likely the heat issue. I can try to tape it or something, but there's no way to get it to sit tightly. I'll try resetting the bios. As far as the system running slower, it doesn't make...
