I3 3225 weird temps for each core Tags: CPUs Core Last response: February 25, 2013 10:57 PM in CPUs Share tiny voices a b à CPUs February 25, 2013 9:09:28 PM I have an i3 3225 and my temps for each core are vastly different. core 0 is usually idling at 35-38 while core 1 stays between 23-26. Core 0 spikes up to 43 when doing something simply like opening a program (like Steam or Itunes) while core 1 stays between 25-30 the whole time. Under full load, core 0 stays right at 49-50 and core 1 tops out at 38-41. (tested with Skyrim) Using the stock cooler re-pasted with Antec formula 7. This there any reason for this? Thanks.

Testing with skyrim seems.....meh If you still get the same problem, maybe you should re-seat the heatsink. Your gonna have to replace the thermal paste too but if you dont want to spend money on that, just leave it alone i guess Can't find your answer ? Ask !
