I hope i have this in the right place if not I apologize.
I recently recieved a new core i7 system and was wondering what peoples experience has been with variations in core temps.
I seem to not be finding the info online and wanted user experience vs manufacturer because I have found they often say "bah thats fine" to just about anything thats still running and has not quit yet lol
MSI X58 Platinum
VISTA Home 64
Core i7 920 2.6 stock cooling
3 Gigs DDR3 A-Data 1333
Samsung Sata 2
Geforce 9500GT 1 Gig PCI 16X
Running real temps i get the following
#0 32c #1 33c #2 38c and #3 33c BIOS shows 39c only gives 1 temp.
it bounces on core #2 from 5-7c above the rest.
I have tried checking processes and threads but it does not show usage on that core at the time.
under full load playing Crysis or Witcher it never goes over 47-48 c
and they seem to balance out a bit more.
anyone had any experience with this? any input is appreciated.
