Cores 1 and 2 are always hotter!?!?!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So this has been happening for a while now but it's time I ask. I have a C2Q Q6600 (G0) and Everest constantly monitors Cores 1 and 2 as 4-5 degrees higher all the time. If I reseat the processor, the temps maybe drop a little but the difference is always that. Now I don't know if I pushed the thermal limit once and broke about 73 and now those are always that high, if those two cores are shot or what....but I am just wondering why those are always hotter, no matter what the cooler is seated at.....

Any suggestions?

They are doing all the work so they are hotter. Unless its a program meant to use 4 cores the first two will be doing the work causing them to run hotter.

So are cores 1 and 2 always designated that way, and even if CPU usage is 1-3%, should they still be 4-5 degrees higher?

Certain cores will always be warmer.
Cores 1 and 2 im sure are going to be the first cores to be accessed before the others for usage.
You may have gotten in/oversufficient TIM on one side of your proc as well unevenly spread. That could be a possibility. Otherwise this comes natural.
