Hi, I've recently noticed that sometimes there is 5-10c difference between some cores under some load on my i7 8700k so i decided to use Real Temp's sensor testing feature and the results are a bit weird. The results were 20,22,24,23,21,13 (this is not the result from the 10 minutes long test, only the test that lasts about 2 seconds). As far as i know a +/- of 3 is normal but i'm still not sure if this is okay. Temps during gaming normally never go above 65c, but if my sensors are wrong to begin with then it doesn't matter. My last PC also had the same problem with Real Temp where it showed sensor test result numbers that have a difference higher than +/- 3 so i'm not sure if this is a problem with the test itself or it isn't a problem at all. Does anyone know if this is normal?
