What could be the cause of that.

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

my X2 has different temps even at idle. its the way the IHS is attached. it may not be touching one core fully. nothing to be done about it but cut the sucker off!!!!!!

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.
