wierd temp problem

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi ive been using speedfan for the last few months for monitoring my temps and it only gives 1 core reading of 35c idle.

Ive just downloaded core temp as an alternative because ive heard its better, it gives me the readings of both cores and while both idle one is at 36c and the other at 30c.

Whats going wrong there? I used the centre rice grain method for applying arctic silver 5.

It's perfectly normal for a multi-core CPU's cores to have unequal temperature readings. I've personally observed differences of up to about 13 degrees between cores, and these chips are absolutely normal and bulletproof.

Much less common are CPUs with perfectly synchronized temperature readings. With all the dual-core CPUs I've installed (for my own rigs and for clients' as well), I've only seen one or two that exhibit close to perfectly equal temperatures.

Don't worry about these temperatures.
