Hello everyone,

I have an old Athlon II x3 710 processor, and recently I've noticed (using Open Hardware Monitor) that the 3rd core is running double and sometimes more than the others, temp wise.

I've tired reapplying thermal paste twice in the last 2 months or so.


My system:

Athlon II x3 710

Radeon HD4870

8GB Corsiar Vengence RAM

Win 7


any ideas as to what can be the problem? Thanks
