Strange but true.
Replaced my Coolermaster 650w with a single rail 60A 750w Corsair unit.
Only mechanical difference is the new psu has 2 of those 4 pin mobo/cpu plugs, which i plugged in.

See sig below

Before:
Bios 1.15v
Idle: 1.12v
Load: 1.09v

After:
Bios: 1.125v (2nd lowest setting :D )
Idle:1.08v
Load:1.06v

The new psu definitely runs more stable.
Anyway, 2.7Ghz on a B3 Q6600 stable at 1.06v is pretty good methinks :bounce:

That's a good thing. I think your new psu is more quality that the old one in terms of providing continuous stable power. Continuous is what to look for in a psu as opposed to peak which generic psu makes LOVE to use as their maximum to make their products look good.
