Windows 7: Q9550

IIRC, 'core 2' was always my 'accurate' idle sensor. Core 4 was permanently stuck at 47c under idle conditions like yours Dave.

As long as they move under load - there is nothing to worry about.

The CPU (tcase) sensor should remain unaffected by the stuck sensors.


As cato mentioned, the Q9xx series were renowned for sticky/stuck idle sensors.

I've got a Q9550 and I always have a few degrees difference between all of my cores. Totally normal.

I have a feeling it's my core2 sensor on my 9550 that's the stuck one. It's abnormally lower than the other 3. Though the CPU fan does need a clean, so it could just be the others are higher than normal at the moment. I just cba taking it out though.

My 9650 has a stuck idle sensor as well.


But, like I always say ... see what it shows under load.
If load temps are good, ignore the idle readings. Load is all that really matters anyway IMO.
