    Greetings all!

    I have a 3770K running on an Asus Sabertooth Z77 board and with CoreTemp running I notice a couple of things -

    1) each core seems to run at a diff temp
    2) the frequency multiplier is constantly changing

    I can't seem to find any references to these issues. Is this "normal" behavior?

    Thanks much!

    I don't own that Processor but what you are saying seems normal.
    1) Cores will have different temps depending on the load.
    2) The frequency will change based on the throttling, power saving feature.

    Ok, it's the first processor of this caliber I've had, and it just kind of threw me off, lol. Used to values staying put.

    That's what I thought when I got my first monster CPU, But as R29K said nothing sounds worrying :)
