Question Why are my CPU core temperatures different?

I have just installed a ryzen 5600x to an asus x570-pro, I enabled D.O.C.P and set the cpu clock speed to 4400MHz. Ram is corsair 3600 which I have set to 3600MHz with fclk set at 1800MHz. When I check my cpu temp in bios, it shows on average 40-50 celsius. When I check cpuid hwmonitor and open hardware monitor, I am seeing very different temperatures betweens the cores. Some at 21 C, some around 40 C and the highest temp at 58 C. I've never seen this on any of my other builds, anyone know what's going on? I'll put some links to screenshots of HWMonitor and OpenHardwareMonitor. Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you!

Core temp is associated with core workload, at that moment.

Differing temps across cores is absolutely normal and to be expected.

If it were identical across all cores, all the time? Then I'd be worried.
Bad sensors or misreporting software.

I see, thank you for the reply!
