    Default Large temperature difference between cores

    Recently my core no.0 has been creeping ahead of no.1, and now for a few days they have been sitting at 5degrees apart. Im rather concerned with the warping this may begin to cause on my cpu, i recently resitted the heat sink so i know its not a case of a dust buildup, and it was fine up untill the last few days. Any ideas what could be causing this?

    EDIT: I have my suspicions that my core no.1 probe may be faulty, as i can't see how a difference of 5degrees can be maintained over a constant period, my physics sense is tingling. Even if there was a problem with the cooling, there shouldnt be a constant difference surely. At full load Core no1 would enter a temperature spike until the system hung, while core no2 settled at it's normal load temp. Instead they stay at 5degrees apart, idle or loaded. (Naturally this changes during periods of unequal loading, but with 100% or 0% it is exactly 5degrees always)

    What do you think? Any ideas how to proove my theory?

    Run core temp. It will show load on each core. The second core may have 1% load when idling causing a higher temp(I think you covered this). When processes run in the background, the cores still work and it does no always mean the 1st core. Never the less..... IMO, nothing to worry about.

    I agree with Drdeath. 5 degrees is nothing to worry about. The Q6600 and Q9550 I used for my daughters builds have the same issue and have since they were new.

    I have core temp running whenever im powered up, that's how i noticed. Well, if its not large enough to have caused damage after a long time on your system then i won't investigate it any further, cheers guys.

    As long as temps are in respecatble rage, your good to go IMO.
