Intel i5-760 core temps are not the same

Specs: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, 2.891 GHz / 2045 MB
I have noticed that cores 0 and 2 run 3*C to 4*C higher than cores 1 and 3. The temps are well controlled with the max never exceeding 49*C. Right now, just typing this message, the temps are (0-3): 37/34/38/33 and max = 47/43/45/45 (after Unigine benchmarking).

Is this normal or did I mess up the thermal paste?

i guess its normal my core2duo cores run 2 degrees differently with a cpu of 40*C
core 1 runs at 47 core 2 runs at 49/48 its pretty normal depending on the core and processing

"The temps are well controlled with the max never exceeding 49*C"
There's nothing to worry. Do u get the same results in bios?

It's normal for the cores to run at different temps.

Its rare that each core will be loaded completely evenly with work. 0 generally runs hotter because windows tends to keep that one busy. (depends on config) It is almost impossible for a muti thread program to divide its usage evenly and no 2 single tread programs will use the exact same power. This causes cpu to varry in usage and therefore vary in temp. Also some times a core will just run cooler similar to 2 identical single core comps running at different temps doing the same thing. There is nothing to worry about as long as cores are withing normal limits.

Thanks, I figured that core 0 is probably overloaded, but I had a hard time getting the Zalman cooler on. The cores were running into the mid-50s with the stock fan.

It took me 3 tries, I finally took the mobo out of the case, after the second attempt.

How do you check temps in the BIOS?

Look for system health or similar, it contain cpu temps, fans rpm, voltages etc.
