Default stuck sensor?

just got my Q9550 and noticed that my 3rd and 4th core are stuck at 38c and go up from there. i have have ambient temp drop by 5 degrees and it showed on the other cores but those 2 stayed the same. when under full load they will go up but not below 38. im using core temp and real temp and both say the same. please help me.

So they go up when you are loading the machine, but only come down to 38 on 2 cores at idle?

So what's the problem? No one really cares about idle temps, as long as they are accurate under load.

You can try an IBT or Linpack run, that sometimes unsticks them.
