I recently installed a new PSU MOBO CPU and a 2nd GPU, and I'm concerned about my CPU's 2nd core temp. c0, c1, c3 all run idle around 30-33c however c2 runs 36-40c idle. I'm using the stock heat sink and fan and I couldn't find a similar problem online. Any information is much appreciated, thanks in advance.

That's OK. At idle there is only light work being done, usually single threaded. So one core will always be a tad warmer. Open Task Manager/Performance and watch which cores are working when idle.
