I have a Intel Pentium E6700 LGA 775 3.2ghz cpu core 0 runs at 30 idle core 1 runs at 36 idle and does not move at all until load is applied. Core 0 usually fluctuates between 29-30-31 at idle. i was wondering if the difference is a bad thing or just something trivial?

The difference is normal, nothing to worry about.

alright thanks for you input i want to get a now cooling system i was thinking about a contained water cooling system such as the ones corsair provides because i want to over clock as much as i can any thoughts on those systems? i know the custom ones work better but these care cheaper and safer imo.

I replaced my cooler and noticed a 2 or 3 degree difference in the cores. Thought it might be uneven application of thermal paste.

ive reapplied it and spread it out even and smooth instead of the dot method and it ran cooler but there was still the same difference.

A 5 or 6 C difference between cores is nothing to worry about.

not sure about simple water as air might be better as it also moves air around the case, I know the p5B d/l comes with a spare fan for mounting on the north/south bridge heatsinks only if you are using water, as otherwise the cpu fan provides enough disturbance. Also a lot of reviews of these smaller water systems have them as not being better than the higher end air solutions.
