I experienced frequent crashes when playing games so I decided to stress test just to make sure it was stable. Upon running Prime95, within 1 second, my core 1 failed at 1.040V Vcore. I decided to increase my vcore slightly, up until 1.080V.
I was able to run Prime95 a good 3 hours without any errors. I know its far from the 24 hour suggested time, but I haven't had the luxury of time recently.
Also, I read the sticky regarding C2D core temps.
At idle, my temps are:
CPU Temp: 36ºC
Core #1: 43ºC
Core #2: 40ºC
Vcore: 1.080 V
At full load (under Prime95):
CPU Temp: 51.5ºC
Core #1: 58ºC
Core #2: 56ºC
Vcore: 1.064 V
I was just wondering, is it normal that my core 1 runs 2-3 degrees hotter than my 2nd core?
And is it normal that my CPU temp is about 5-8 degrees colder than my core temps (Sticky says 4-6 degrees delta)?
And lastly, is it normal that my Vcore is lower under load (I never quite understood Vdroop, and I have LLC enabled)?
Thanks again guys.
