Temp gap between E8400 cores

Alright I have run my E8400 at stock speed since the beginning, and real temp, as well as core temps, has registered some weird temp gaps between both cores, so i need to know if this is normal of if its a matter of concern:

Core 0: 20C
Core 1: 35C

Core 0: 33C
Core 1: 44C

I applied MX-2 on both my cpu and my Zalman 9500 led at the time of installation.
I have checked that when the cpu is in mid load, both core are Loaded evenly, but even at idle as you see, with no load, they have a huge temp gap :( 
I need suggestions please.

looks like there is something wrong with the sensor on core 0.. 20C? is your room temp 10C or something?

How do i measure my room temp and case temp ? is that the casual temp of the atmosphere? Its 33C in my town...

terror112 is right, seems like something is wrong with your core 0 sensor. Usually, the core 1 temp is ~3-4c below the core 0 temp.

Perhaps a factory defect ? Bad thermal paste appliance?

I'd say you need to reapply the thermal paste. Clean off the old stuff and make sure you put it on evenly
