Core i3 2120 1 core runs HOTTER
Aug 24, 2012, 2:05 AM
Core 1 is always between 5C and 7C hotter than core 0. Is this normal? I am using stock cooler and a non expensive asrock h61 mobo.
Thanks for your help in advance.

Yeah, it's fine. I have one core on my 2500K that is basically the same way (more like 3-5C, for me). It's normal, though, if for no other reason than one core is being used more than the other.
