Just installed q9650 cpu, but notice while using even a q6600 cpu that in both cases core "0" is about 6c hotter than other cores while using Win 7 64bit. Does anybody know why that happens? On a 32bit system Quad CPU's seem to be more equal.

I\'d guess that the first processor is running the kernel, which then splits tasks to the other processors.


I'm not the LHC Alex. Just a number cruncher like everyone else here.
