i bought a new E6600 Wolfdale to put on one of my system
i got strange temp difference between both core
idle core 0 @40c core 1 @32c
100% core 0 @50c core 1 @44c
why is there 6 to 8c between cores, I reinstall the cooler just to be sure, of course i will adjust me cooler fan speed faster to get lower idle temp, but my question still why that much temp diff ?
I have old e6600 Conroe and temp diff are kindof 2c
i used pc wizard for temp.
The reason for the difference is because core 0 tends to be more active than core 1, the reason is even at 100% load core 1 will not always be utilized by the same amount as core 0...
What can also have an effect is the positioning of the temp readers, but i doubt that is the reason...
