Hi all, I have a question while i test with prime95, the testing speed among cores have differences, I'm using i7 950 oc to 3.96Ghz window7ultimate64, hyperthread disabled, so when i test with prime95 it is custom 4 threads. For example, while worker 1 and worker 2 are almost same speed doing Test 14 , worker 4 comes in late and doing Test 13, and worker 3 is the slowest and still doing Test 12. Is that normal? or does it indicate that some of my cpu cores are faulty? thx

Nothing wrong with your cores - just scheduling and competition for on-chip/mobo resources. Some tasks just have to come in second.
