Is the cpu supposed to be higher temp than its cores?

Recommended Posts


I could of sworn it was the other way around before I installed this new mother board. As in, the cores were definitely hotter than the "cpu" as it were.

Maybe my memory is just hazy. Anyone care to correct me? Might need to re-set the heat sink.

And it fluctuates a lot more than it did...

I'm assuming I did something wrong.

It seems well seated though...hmm.

The idle temps even when not overclocked are greater than it was OC'd from 2.4 to 3.0. It idled at low to mid 30s at hits 40 at 2.4 now. Something's wrong for sure.

Here we go.
