I was trying my hand at overclocking again. As I was running OCCT I noticed there was a big difference between my first and second two cores. My first and second core were running at 73, and my third and forth core were running at 68? Why would something like this happen?

Thanks

What you are describing is 100% perfectly normal, and is caused because you can't really get a PERFECT application of thermal grease on there. It can also be caused by extremely small variations on the IHS of the processor. Again, 100% normal. The Q6600 in my sig, loads at 47/46/52/53.

thermal paste isnt evenly distributed, or the Internal heatspreader wasnt evenly installed on the cores, or its just the way the cores work.

it could be one or a combination of the three that give you difference in the temps. AFAIK it is normal

Thanks then. I thought my thermal paste was poorly applied or something of that nature.
