3770k Higher Temp on one core when gaming

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello,

When I run Prime95 all of my cores hit around the same temps under the 100% load. However when I play a game such as Diablo 3 one core is usually anywhere from 8-10 degrees higher on average than the other 3 cores. Is this just the fact that the game is probably putting more load on that specific core?

My logic is that if Prime95 under 100% load the cores are all around the same temp then it is obviously the game putting more load on the core that is reaching the 8-10 more degree difference. Can someone confirm?

I just reapplied thermal paste when I got the new h100i so I am just wondering maybe I didn't get it spread evenly across the cores but that doesn't make sense because under Prime95 they are all around the same temp it is just when gaming.

I belive your logic is correct as workloads on my cores fluctuate with even one core at some point in time doing more work than others causing about a 6*C - 8*C difference in my case.

all depends how many cores are used and at what rate - so it will differ with different apps thumb.gif

Commonplace for one core to be loaded a little more. Nothing to worry about.

Ok I will write this off as normal. Never noticed this before while monitoring real temp so I didn't know if it is normal. Only started happening after I reapplied tim.

If it was a tim issue then it would show up under load using prime95 and the variance would be a lot worse
