920 and p6x58D : Why different temps between cores? Tags: Intel Core Overclocking Last response: January 14, 2010 3:35 AM in Overclocking Share orangecat January 12, 2010 2:30:30 AM I just put the rig together and I'm still messing with it. I'm getting a consistant 7-8 deg C difference between core one and four. Why is this? Is it normal? More about : 920 p6x58d temps cores fpsdominator January 13, 2010 8:21:38 PM its normal to have a 5c difference at the most. try re-seating the heatsink and applying fresh thermal paste. and were did you get that "turbo v" program? pluke the 2 January 13, 2010 8:33:05 PM 7- 8 Degree Temp Difference is normal.

I'm speculating it has to do with work load on the given core at the time as well as physical location of said core. To see them all the same or even very close is actually rare. andy5174 a b K Overclocking January 13, 2010 9:53:49 PM You could use the "Print Screen" key at the top right corner of your keyboard to get better screen shot. Do it next time or some mean peoples here will laugh at you. overshocked a b K Overclocking January 13, 2010 10:24:12 PM First core is usually much much hotter than the others, especially if you have turbo enabled. It is completely normal. PsiStar January 14, 2010 12:18:27 AM orangecat ... I get that difference & a little more at times. Doesn't seem to make much difference OC-ed or not & apparently has not affected the OC capability .... been at 4.34 GHz orangecat January 14, 2010 3:35:29 AM Turbo is disabled but HT is enabled. TurboV program came with the mobo. LOL at myself for using a camera to do a screen shot but the rig is only a few hours old here and I didn't have the lan hooked up to it yet. Thanks for letting me know this is not an abnormal situation. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
