I can't speak for quad cores, but I can tell you that my dual core laptop consistently has hotter cores than the actual "CPU" temperature. The Diode also runs hotter. I believe this is all normal.

Hi, depending on how your cooling is setup this sounds normal to me.

As a rule of thumb whenever I build PCs I allow about 3 degrees temperature difference between cores just to allow for various variables etc.

As long as it doesn't consistently exceed about 6 degrees difference when your CPU is near 100% I think you'll be fine.

Upgrading from a dual core to a quad core!
Hi all! I am not computer illiterate. I have a question for you. I am switcing from an AMD dual core 2.4GHz to a Phenom 9750 Quad core. Changing out the heatsink and fan also. Can I just swap out the CPU's and restart Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. Or do I have to do a complete reinstall of the same OS?...
