    i have been running this cpu for over 2-3 weeks now and somethign i am noticing which i wanted to clearify if anyone else knows of this , the bios temps and the speed fan temps for cpu show around and under 22-25C idle , but the speed fan temps for all four cores are like this on idle 38,40,40,38 ......... so my question is why are the cores showing higher temps than the cpu , i didnt have this phenomenon with my q6600 ...... please advise thx.

    The core temps are read differently than the overall CPU temp.
    I'm surprised you did not see this with your q6600.
    That is how it is on my qx6700

    what you are seeing looks perfectly reasonable and is most likely correct.
    your core temprature is the temp deep in the cpu center , the other cpu temprature is the temps on the surface of the cpu. The core temprature will always be hotter.

    Remember back in the day when temps were from a thermal diode in the middle of the socket and temps could vary a significant amount?
