I dont think cooler will make any effect to the MB Temp, it says my MB temp in bios under CPU Temp.

Mobo temp is measured by a thermister on the mobo below the CPU and is a reflection of the heat at the bottom of the CPU socket. Unless you have a fan blowing on the back size of the mobo the mobo temp isn't effected by a HSF design or fans directly.

Does that happens to you in other games, or just in Diablo 3? Diablo 3 has very olad game angine. Try other games anf then check CPU usage.

Most of the games I play, do that as well. Core 0 will be 100% while the other 7 will be 0-12%.
Hope it's not being artificially limited because it's not "GenuineIntel"
You'd think they'd want the games to play good, no matter what hardware you are using.

Although in my case, it's because the FX 8150 is way overpowered for games I play. 25% CPU usage pushes my GPU to 80-100%

If your gpu usage is up to 99% then u dont need to vory about CPU usage. But, i have not see in any of games i play that only 1 core is in usage.

I think this depends on the game. Batman Arkham City pegs my 6th core at 100% as soon as I start it. Its weird. When I Alt/Tab out of it, its just sitting there at 100% with the other 5 cores humming around 15% or so. Everything works plenty smooth though so I dont think its a problem and have never really worried about it. Id say as long as your games are running smoothly, I wouldnt worry about it either.

Might be joining you guys tomorrow. Really been wanting to get a 8120 for something new to play with and contemplating driving down to Atlanta tomorrow and visiting their Microcenter and taking them up on one of their $150 8120's. I know I dont need it as my 1090 has been doing an admirable job but what kind of AMD fanboy would I be if I skipped the Bulldozer line completely? biggrin.gif

Nah, I just want something new to play with. Ive taken this X6 as far as she'll go Im afraid and a 8120 running 4.6 will be a decent upgrade for me.
