hi. guys i wanted to know what is going with my CPU.
i just got it installed E6500 2.9 ghz ( upgrade from D 820).

i use HWmonitor and core temp. and both gives me the same info.
core # 0 - 40C
core # 1 - 34C

it will stay like that for hours and hours. unless i crank up a blueray movie and a game at the same time. and it will still be

core # 0 - 41C
core # 1 - 34C

the thing is it have never gone down 40C and 34C ( just install a custom Heatsink/fan which improved 10C on my other computer) . i don't know what is going on. when i go into bios it shows 27C inside asus status. it seems not to go under 40C and 34C at all.

where is my real CPU temp.

I've got an e6500 too, overclocked up to 3.3Ghz. My temps are about the same as yours. Here are some screenshots:

Both idles:

core # 0 - 42C
core # 1 - 34C

Core 0 idle:

core # 0 - 50C
core # 1 - 51C

Core 1 idle:

core # 0 - 58C
core # 1 - 50C

Both working:

core # 0 - 60C
core # 1 - 57C

First I thought it was due to the thermal grease, but then I saw your post. Do you still have the same temps?

Can you please make the same tests?
To stop only one core: File-->Stop-->Uncheck the box

What's quite weird is when Core 0 is idle!! Both cores have the same temps! oO


I got a reply from Bima Sylirian:


Yours seems fine to me. Yes, Core #0 is hotter than Core #1. The same thing also happen to me.
The difference between Core #0 and Core #1 temp in my CPU reach 13 C under heavy load with Prime95.
Core #0 can hit 70 or even surpass it but Core #1 only hit 60 C or lower than that most of the time.
Extreme isn't it?

Your CPU is stable right? It would be okay as long as it is stable.

Thanks Bima
