Each core has 32kb of level 1 cache. L2 cache(3mb) is unified (used by both cores).

32kb is level 1 cache. Post the system specs.

All we needed was the CPU - P8400. L1 = 32k x 2. L2 = 3MB shared. I don't know where you're getting the spec info from, but there's nothing that needs fixing.

everything looks fine the 3mb is L2 and each core shares that ammount. wut the guys said above is absolutely correct, no need to worry abt anything
