    So I'm running Parallel's and I was curious - when I'm running Parallel's the CPU usage (according to MenuMeters) one of them is genereally at 30/50% and the other is around 70/80%

    my question is - is it bad when both the core's run for a long time at different percentages?

    I'm usually running Parallel's for a few hours a day so I don't want to cause long term damage...will it? :confused:

    thanks!

    BTW - I have 2gb ram installed too if that helps with anything

    Of course it doesn't matter. Why would you think that 2 cores running at different loads would cause "damage"? It's a CPU. It's designed to do work.

    I figured that they should run equally?...

    Won't do it any harm -- don't worry about it.
