Default prime95/dualcore ?

i have two instances of prime95 running with the infinity set 0 and 1 respectively. now on my amdCpu monitor it shows core 0 pegged at 100% , but core 1 jumps around between 7 and 70%. i get no errors from prime. is this supposed to happen??
info for my comp specs check sig.

edit: i havent started OC so its all stock!

when you run torture test choose custom and specify ram for each to use. when i used blend the one i started first beat the other to the punch and tied up all the ram leaving it with no resources and therefore the load was low. with my 1gb of ram i set each instance to use 300mb, mainly so i could still do other things while it was running. seeing as you have 2gb i would set them each to say 800-900mb. it will probably never get any where that usage but whats the harm
