I just put a Pentium E6600 into a HTPC. The two cores are showing a temperature difference of between 7-10C.
Seems like a lot to me. Any input?

Maybe one is doing more work and therefore warmer. 7-10C is not much.

Perhaps one core is doing more processing than the other.

What does Task Manager tell you in the performance tab?

There is not a big difference in the work load of the two cores.

If that's the case, then maybe the thermal paste has not been properly applied so that it covers the cpu surface evenly.

Good call, I will re-seat it.

My quad fluctuates up to 7c between cores. This is normal for c2d and c2q architectures.
