Hey all...just finished my new build, thanks to all the great info on this forum most of my decisions were made pretty easy. This is my first build, and I'm just wondering, is it normal for one of my core temps (core 1) to be running a consistently higher temp under no load than the rest? At idle the other 3 cores are around 25-28c. Core 1 is up around 38-40c. This is with my fans running on low, turning them up a bit brings it down a little.
The chip is a 3570k btw.
Thats normal i think because i think that your os and windows applications use core 1 more than the others. Dont kill me if im wrong but im pretty sure im right
40 is fine also!
