The tldr: It’s 100% normal behavior.

My former 4690K, current 5775C and Xeon X5470 all had the same thing in just about any benchmark where one core is hotter than the rest. The 4690K and 5775C were delidded and the i5 core 1 was hotter by about 5 degrees, my i7 the third core was actually the hottest by 6 degrees, and on the X5470 (which is soldered) core 1 is hotter by sometimes up to 15C. Its normal behavior because windows will pick a “go-to” core for most of its stuff, allocating the rest to other things that are left over.

Motherboards I’ve killed: Sabertooth Z77, AsRock G41-C R2.0, MSI Z97 Gaming 5, ASUS Z97A, EVGA 790i SLI Ultra.

Before and after running Cinebench after re-pasting, this time using the Line method for thermal paste, first time was the center dot. The CPU is concave, and when i took the cooler off, there was barely any paste in the middle portion where the die is located. Basically package temp -5 C wtih line method
