You can monitor your temps using Hw monitor, till they don exceed 70 c, you are fine. | Report abuse Plumble December 6, 2010 3:21:01 PM It is fine and perfectly normal as one core wil normally do a little more work than another. Worry if it gets 15C-20C hotter. I've got a 7C difference right now with my quad. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>One core hotter than the other> Related ressources: ForumOne core running hotter than the other three ForumIs it normal for one CPU core to always run hotter than the others?
