Higher load on one of the cores. Meh. Its normal under full load for there to be a difference. No biggy.

I've seen temp differences even on an Opteron sans IHS.

I think this is caused by sensor (mis)calibration, which really doesn't do you any favors if you're the anal type who likes to keep an eye on temperatures.

hmmm....

I had some 5-7C differences when I initially installed a cooler on one occasion. I reseated, and made sure that the pressure was even accross all 4 anchor points. The difference dropped to 1-2C.

A variation is normal, but you could try fiddling if you wanted.

Might have something to do with the heatspreader solder points as well ...

Just a thought.

I know mine are around 3 to 4 degrees off ...

The cooler is fine. I didn't have a problem till I had to take it all apart and put everything back together. Before my temps were off by only 1c up or down.

I will redo it again in a while.
