minerd itself doesn't bind any process/thread to any specific core. And 
it just works for me now.

Can you show your configs or logs? What does `minerd` say, what does 
`limit`, is there any other changes to your default configuration that 
can possibly limit this.

Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow.
