Temps dont seem right

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
On my Q9550 while playing BC2. Why would Core 0 be so much higher than the others? Isnt this a bit much of a difference between all cores?

Core 0: 70c
Core 1: 59c
Core 2: 58c
Core 3: 57c

Games only use one or 2 cores at 100%. This is normal.

Seems to me it just depends on which core is doing the lifting... though I suppose it could be an uneven heatsink. I'm sure you would have noticed it by now...

Gaming isn't a great way to judge your core temps because many games can't even take advantage of all cores- so you'll get that uneven loading. If you end up running a program that maxes out all cores at the same time and see a similar problem- 10C still isn't that big a deal but it would be more indicative of a heatsink applying uneven pressure- or having an uneven application of thermal paste.

Except BC2 is one of the few multithreaded games..

This does seem normal however, most games have one main thread and then a set of mini threads distributed.
