Q6600 core temp variance

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am about to switch from air cooling over to an xsps rs360 kit and have had my q6600 OC'd to 3.2 for a while. I am hoping to get up to about 3.6 maybe a little more on h20 but ever since I got this chip I have had a real big variance in temperatures across my cores. Just wondering what causes this so maybe I can correct the problem when I move over to water this weekend. Right now my hottest core is at 51º and my lowest core is at 43º while folding at 100% (for CC) and the room temp is about 75ºC, vcore is at 1.32.
