One core stays about 8-10c hotter than the other...

    On my other Opteron 170 the temps were pretty even, but on this one I get one core way hotter. Could it be a faulty or misplaced sensor? The lower of the 2 cores is at a very acceptable temp range idle and load @ 50% OC, but the other core is in the low 60's @ load. I ordered a sunbeam core contact cooler to replace my AC Freezer 64 pro which should help all around, but the 10c difference in core temps still troubles me.

    It could be the one that is overheating is getting more load then the others, if you use windows look in the task manager under the processes tab and right click on some processes that are running all the time and set the affinity to another core (not the one that's hotter of course). If that doesn't seem to help then the sensor may be faulty like you said. If its been running like this for some while without problem, then just leave it. :cool:

    I assume you've tried reseating the cooler?
