Default Re: core temps

Is this at 100% load (all 4 cores)?

Cores 2 and 3 (I'm guessing) are a lot lower, maybe indicating an uneven cooler.

But, all temps are within the safe range. 0 and 1 are a little warm, but should be fine.


Intel Q9400 | Gigabyte EP45-UD3P | G.Skill 2x2GB DDR2 1000 | XFX HD5870

them chips can withstand heat up to 80C so no need to worrie until you pass 70ish, might be wrong but heard them chips can take alot of heat, try re-seating your HS which should improve temps
