HSF: Scythe Mugen 2 rev. b with MX-2
My CPU is running at stock speed at the moment, but adjusted the RAM to different timings and voltage. So then I ran the blend test on Prime95 last night for 8 hours successfully with zero errors. Never exceeded 56 degrees. But now I am noticing that one of the core's temps is higher than usual at idle. Core 0,1, and 3 idle just fine around 19-22 degrees, while core 2 will idle between a fluctuating 26-29 degrees. Never goes below 26 for that core 2.
My sensor movement is also uneven it seems. In RealTemp it shows the movements as: 24 (core 0), 21 (core 1), 12 (core 2), and 14 (core 3).
I know its the load temp that I should be worried about, but is this a sign of a stuck sensor? And other than not knowing accurate idle temps, is there anything to be concerned about when it comes to shelf life and performance?
