core temp

Code: Select all
This will be a memorable month -- no matter how hard you try to forget it.
smile@smile-desktop:~$ sensors
k8temp-pci-00c3
Adapter: PCI adapter
Core0 Temp:
             +23°C
Core1 Temp:
             +32°C


Why would there be a 9°C difference between the two cores?
I realize that one is most likely doing more work than the other however given their close proximity to each other
(being on the same chip and all) shouldn't they be around the same temperature?

AMD 3800 X2 :D

Is it turned on :):)
Seriously this is so low that it's almost as if it's turned off and the one has probably done a little bit of work - the other not. Dual core cpus works much like two separate cpus

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

hrmm it is turned on... :( I am worried now.

I reset it and had a look at what the bios had to say about temperatures and it agrees with 'sensors'.

The temp does go up by a good 10 - 20 degrees if I start f@h so I figure the thermal sensors must be working? Perhaps they are reading low.

Hrmm!
