I am just trying to understand most of the posts I have read over the last few months. Still confused, I choose to leave this basic question. Intel Q 9550 (EO) is the processor in question and Asus P5E VM HDMI is the MB....all settings are set on factory auto....when starting Real Temp Sensor Test......right off the back I have on Core Movement 16 12 8 7. Is that normal?? Other than that it completes the test and all seems fine with the exception of core 0.. it reads approx 6 degrees higher thru the entire test over the other 3 cores untill the last 3 phases of cool down then they are all very similar readings..all in all I was merely assuming that the Core Movement would have been a lil closer across all cores???
