Please help!!!
What you're looking at is the integrated heat sink, not the die. The die is under there and is where the physical cores are, fyi.
That kind of idle with each core at a different temperature is nothing to be alarmed about. My cores are the same way and have been that way since day one. There's really nothing you can do about it, some cores will run hotter for no reason.
My idle is all over the place as well with a 31C average. What's more important is your load temps.
