The differences between the cores is normal. In fact, depending on the tasks you are doing, certain areas of the core will heat up. It all really depends on what part of the chip is being utilized from moment to moment. CPUs are only similar to the other chips cut from the same waifer, so one batch might have a different range between the core temps then another. Dont get me wrong, there shouldnt be a difference >10Â°C. But rest assured, there is nothing wrong with your CPU.
