atm im runing at [email protected] to get any higher i need to bump up the voltage but the problem is the volts im at put core#2 to around 50c(full load) while core#1 runs at about 40ish. why is one core sooooooooooo much hotter than the other and is there anything i can do to cool it down some. think i remember reading somewhere on here a while bk that you need to apply thermal paste diff for dual core

Re-seat the heatsink and make sure you place the right amount of as5 on.

Well, maybe you are not applying the as5 correctly. How are you doing it?

what if the one cpu doesnt have the right ammount of thermal compound on it under the IHS.. take it off.. and run it naked.. it drops temps by 5-7C.. but just like with XPs.. u need to be extra carefull when puttin the heatsink on to not crack the chip

The method for applying as5 to dual core chips is not different. The same method is used because the ihs spreads the heat so a rice grain still works.

</div>There is a program called Core Temp that monitors both cores at once. <a href="http://www.thecoolest.zerobrains.com/CoreTemp/" target="_blank">http://www.thecoolest.zerobrains.com/CoreTemp/</a>

honestly the naked coreis super easy, and soworth it.<br />
<br />
But, other than that...there's no way to check both temps.

ive got core temp but speedfan reads the k8 sensor chip which is exactly what core temp reads, they both give the exact same reading. well actually core temp reads core#2 the same as speedfan but core#1 as something dfif im not sure<br><br><br>
sideburns: to check the temp of core#2 im loading up folding and setting affinity to core#2, this puts temps up to around 60c with 1.4vcore so unless im having a blonde moment this is telling me that core#2 runs super hot. id love to be wrong but from my working out i dont think i am, plz correct me if im being stupid.<br><br>
ite smartguardian gives nice low temp readings and you would think they would be right considering they make the sensor chip but alas i dont think they are

</div> It's not hard to take off the IHS, but a slip can kill it..Dont do it unless you can afford a new cpu...It will give you a lot better temp's..

Well since both cores are on the same die I dont think one will run hotter than the other unless you load one to 100% and leaev the other idle but then again the temp will be the same as sharing the load
