Don't know what you found for an answer but there's nothing wrong with those variances. If they were like 8-9 degrees apart, then you might wonder.

Anyways you said you found your answer.

Peace

One thing to be aware of, the Q9550 is fairly notorious for having stuck sensors. I have a sensor that never goes below 40. They all work fine when temps go above that, but it's not unusual for that processor to give a wrong reading at idle temps in at least one of the cores.

I have three stuck idle sensors on my Q9550.

Put that chip under some stress to see if they 'move'.


Even then a few degrees difference per core is normal.

Notice that the processor isn't under load, and that the temps are only 3 degrees apart from highest to lowest. Given that i'd say there's no problem there.

I seen as much as a 6 degree delta and things be fine....

I've have those as well and found that if the first core is way off like yours is, re-applying the thermo paste may be in order.

Or as some have said, you might have a stuck sensor. You can check it by clicking the sensor check tab.

Have done both, and it's always been like that.
