I have an intel 2600k, mine is much like yours core temp wise. I reset the cpu cooler a few times and the core temps were still pretty much the same. Did some research and thats just the way they are.

My 2500k is pretty much exactly the same with core 3 being the hottest, then 4, then 2, then 1 being the coolest

I pretty much agree with Xristo on what he said, in my case cores 1,2 get most of the load and are the ones that should be working at higher temps than the others. And as said it seems like your paste isnt as well spread out to help with temps on the cores 3,4

But you only uploaded the picture of temps, and it would be of great interest to have your temps together with ur 'task manager' cpu workload so that it can be seen that the cores with the most workload are the ones with the most temperature on them? (its not a matter of cores its a matter of workload on which cores)

If you do indeed re-seat the heatsink please let us know if that was indeed the problem?

In my case core 1 is the coolest (10C lower under full load in IBT) with the other 3 cores within 2-3C of each other. I am using that Coolaboratory Liquid Ultra stuff that is brushed on, so I know the entire heatsink is covered, and the Thermalright Archon is firmly on there. So it's either the heatsink being weirdly uneven, or the cause is under the heatsink (soldering or whatnot).

It seems as though there are some mixed opinions. Perhaps the 2500k is a bit different than other CPUs. I noticed on my i5 750 that core 1 usually did most of the work, but with this i5 2500k, it looks as if core 3 is the dominant core. I would have to agree with the latter of the two. I've watched the load on my Core Temp graph, and core 3 is usually outworking everyone else.

Just snapped a quick pic of it again... this time I don't even know what it was thinking about, but it held there for a few seconds.
