Solved Processor core temperature stuck

Specs: WinXP Pro SP3, Intel Core 2 Duo E-7500 @2.93GHz / 3.50 RAM
I have a stock Intel Core 2 Duo E 7500 on my WinXP Pro SP3 system and I have been monitoring the core temperatures of my processor lately using Real Temp 3.60 version. Why is the temperature of Core 0 somewhat stuck to 38 degrees celsius while Core 1's temperature reads randomly from 32 to 36 to 33 degrees celsius like normal. When I apply a little load, naturally the temperatures on both cores rises but on Core 0 the temperature never drops below 38 degrees C. What do you think is wrong? Any help provided is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Use another monitoring software

I did as instructed use Aida64 and the same readings apply like mentioned before.
Temperatures in idle status:CPU : 38.5
:Core#1 : 38.0
:Core#2 : 34.1

And I did a 3-minute CPU Stress Test and the readings are as follows;
CPU : 36 min / 41 max / 38.7 avg.
Core#1 : 38 min / 48 max / 44.8 avg.
Core#2 : 32 min / 46 max / 41.8 avg.

And still Core#1 never drops below 38 in idle status. Any thoughts or explanation on what's happening is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

Both cores are not going to be at exactly the same temperature & a few degrees is nothing to worry about. There could be a minor difference in the placement of the thermal material between the CPU & heatsink that's causing the "problem", or it could be inherent to the dual core layout of your CPU. Regardless, your temps are fine & there is nothing to worry about. Don't look for a problem where there is none.
