I got a new power supply after my other fried my board has a 8 pin cpu power but 4 worked on the other so my new one has 2x 4 pin power it's the sqauar one i used 2 but now im using 1 it says 3.25V and the temp is extremly rising what do i do? it gets loud when it heats up but that might be my power or radeon 6870 (it's big so might speed up a bit)

Under what circumstances does it heat up? 55 is fine under CPU load (eg Prime95). If the noise occurs in gaming, it's probably the graphics card. You should be able to tell by taking off the side of the case and listening close up.
What's the model of the PSU?

Fix: use Google Chrome.

Rattley? Did you attach it properly? Go look at the instructions. I'm assuming it's stock. It might be a good idea to get a decent third-party heatsink like the $20 Hyper TX3 or the $30 Hyper 212 Plus.
Generally good for CPU mounting: http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.php?option=com_conten...

Wait, wait. 3.25 or 1.325? The latter should be fine; the former should have fried your computer. You can change the voltage to 1.28 manually, though, in the BIOS. It should be a pretty easily accessible option.

Sorry but Google Chrome is a horrible browser. The errors may be date related. Need to make sure your date is correct as certs are active from one day to a certain date.

The CPU at 1.325v is fine, as is 55c. the stock heatsink is always loud, they are pretty crappy.

Then use Firefox. Whatever. Anything but IE.

What do you mean? I accedently made my cpu go to 1.8V for about 30 seconds.

I don't know if that should have broken it, but if it's working now don't worry about it.
