    Question Core temperature of CPU

    I have a question concerning the core temp of my CPU. Here is my computer configuration:



    Velocity computer: Buck/PC

    Operating System
    Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 1 (build 6001)
    Processor a Main Circuit Board b
    2.80 gigahertz AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core;
    128 kilobyte primary memory cache;
    1024 kilobyte secondary memory cache; Mother Board: ASUSTeK Computer INC. M2N32-SLI DELUXE 1.XX
    Bus Clock: 200 megahertz
    BIOS: Phoenix Technologies, LTD ASUS M2N32-SLI DELUXE 04031 Velocity Micro Edition DC 04/03/2007
    Graphics: G-Force 8600 GTS

    Drives Memory Modules c,d
    400.09 Gigabytes Usable Hard Drive Capacity
    (311.70 Gigabytes Hard Drive Free Space)
    External hard drive for backup

    LITE-ON DVDRW LH-20A1P ATA Device [CD-ROM drive]
    3.5" format removeable media [Floppy drive]

    Hitachi HDT725040VLA SCSI Disk Device (400.09 GB) -- drive 0

    2046 Megabytes Installed Memory
    Slot 'DIMM_A1' has 1024 MB
    Slot 'DIMM_B1' has 1024 MB
    Slot 'DIMM_A2' is Empty
    Slot 'DIMM_B2' is Empty

    I recently started using CoreTemp.exe 0.99.3 and have noticed that one of my cores reads approximately 10-20% lower than the other one independant of the load. I wonder if this indicates a problem with my CPU.

    Right now core 0=82 degrees F. and core 1=100 degrees F.

    Is this cause for concern or is it a normal condition?

    Thanks very much,
    zbuckone

    I had tried out & blogged about this utility very recently at How to measure & monitor CPU temperature. My temps, then were 35 & 36 degrees Celsius.

    But I am no expert on hardware. Lets hope someone can help you.

    First of all,anything above 60 degree is not good.So just fix it.There will a diff in the temperature of two cores,so you need to give attention to the overall temperature of your system.

    Btw,how old is your system?

    Look into the "Read me" file of Core Temp. There you find this: "All AMD K8 CPUs are supported starting with the early SH-C0 stepping and up. The latest 65nm BH-G1 and DH-G1 revisions give inaccurate readings." On my 65nm AMD, I get these funny readings with an ambient room temperature of 77F (over 25C).

    I have tried CoreTemp to checkout...on my laptop...and I think so its normal...
    becoz initial core (i.e. Core 0) holds more load than rest of. So it gets heat more than anyone....

    You can check in Task Manager too.....in CPU core usuage.

    Thanks for your input HappyAndyK, Tweakwindows, whs, and Ramesh Kumar MVP. This information puts me a little more at ease. Btw, my system is approximately 3 yrs old if memory serves me right and it could probably use a good blow job which seems to help with everything! ;-)

    u can reset the heat sink with addition of thermal paste like arctic silver or tuniq to reduce the temps still more ...
