    Default q9550 overclocked?

    I have a curious thing happening with my processor. The first core is always about 5-7 degrees hotter than the other 3. Does anyone have an answer for this? would it help to take the cooler off and reapply thermal paste? Thanks for your time and your help.

    its normal for one or two cores to be slightly hotter than the other two,i just think its the way it processes data with #1 core doing most of the work first it shouldnt vary much though between the four cores maybe 5-6c anymore and you might need to re-apply thermal paste
