My question is about core 0. After I boot windows 7 up as it sits in idle with 2% load core 0's temp fluctuates quite frequently. It will go from 18c and jump to 25c in a second and then go right back down to 18-19c, then after a couple of seconds it might go back to about 26. It continues to fluctuate while the other cores remain relatively the same.
Is it normal to fluctuate so rapidly though? If I'm idling on the desktop with nothing else running core 0 will stay around 19-20c but then in 1 second will spike to about 26-28c, then drop immediately back to 19-20c.
This might be normal, I just wasn't sure. I've reseated the CPU a couple times and on every time I come out with the same results.
