More about 3770k hotter idle core
  1. Normal it is not multitasking all the time and #0 is the default core.
  2. It's normal, but I have the opposite kinda thing going on with Core 0 on my 2500K. Core 0 for me is usually several degrees cooler than the rest. It's Core 1 that's the warmest for me.

    Looks like a faulty sensor on core0. Even if u use only core0, the temp diff can't be so high, because the cores are so closely spaced to each other......no worries thoe, the other 3 are giving u the correct temps :)
