Where is each core located in my 3770k?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm curious to where my cores are located in my ivy bridge 3770k just in case one core is hotter than the rest I can know where it is located.

Graphics is at the top of the chip, since the picture is sideways.

Think it would have been more useful if you could say where core#0 is positioned like left or right.

It's pretty much normal that one core could run hotter than others or one can run a few degrees cooler

Yea I'm not having that problem I just would like to have thatt knowledge in my brain hhaha. Would anyone be able to make a quick diagram in paint showing the die and cores 1 - 4?

Here you go, the same orientation, the CPU die is right in the middle of the Chip, under the IHS, right above where it says 1438 on the photo. and stretch all the way across the Blue Box I drew. For reference Core Temp & Real Temp will report the Cores as 0,1,2,& 3:

So it lays out like this from top to bottom right in the middle of that blue box.

Awesome thank you! REP to you. I already did know where the die is though because I'm a delidder and I put much effort into not scratching that shiny thing-a-majigy in the center of the pcb biggrin.gif

Its a common problem with intel that 1 core is hotter than the others. Nothing to worry about, i experience the same

wow, look at all the space that igpu wastes (for enthusiast use).
They could easily fit in 6 cores for standard GPU prices...

or couldn't they take out igpu and make bigger cores for those of use who use graphics cards? With more "greatness" in each one? That way we can all have 6Ghz chips thumb.gif

The problem is you then have to maintain different fab lines with different reticles for different products within the same generation, which isn't efficient (not to mention there's a lot more work that happens after the chip is fabbed). It's best when you just bake 1 type of cake and downstream put frosting on it.
