Do you know this from experimenting or have your read that somewhere?
I did notice that Core 0 is my coolest core, but it's like 8+ C cooler than the max core temp at max load so I was always assuming that the thermistor was just off. Core 1 and 2 seem to be within 1/2 C of each other and then Core 3 seems to be 3/4C cooler than the max core temp.
Example: Here is a typical temp spread for my cores at max load while running Prime 95:
Core 0 @ 70C
Core 1 @ 80C
Core 2 @ 80C
Core 3 @ 77C
Anyone know what physical location Core 0 is in an i3770K? I wonder if that is the reasoning behind the temp difference or if it's just simply a thermistor being off.
