Quick question. First of all im sorry if this has been asked befor , i missed the answer somewhere. I have unlocked all 4 cores in my 550 , and OCed to 3.4 very stable. However i noticed in task manager that each core progressively works less,, or has less activity ,, the 4th core showing some, but very little activity, is this normal or a sign of a faulty core??
