I5-3570k idle temps

I just got my 3570k yesterday and put everything together. After installing everything I download coretemp/realtemp and checked my idles. For some reason my core #0 is quite a bit higher than the rest.
core#0 34c
core#1 24c
core#2 26c
core#3 24c
package temp 34c

I did some load testing with prime and these were the max temps after an hour:
core#0 54c
core#1 54c
core#2 54c
core#3 49c
package temp 54c

Pretty much the same on load except for that rogue core#3. I thought it may just be a bad seating of my Hyper 212+ so I took it off and checked the paste(only a few hours after I had put it on). There were a few gaps in the heat pipes and part of the IHS didn't have paste on it. So I touched it up with a little more thermal paste and figured that I had fixed it. When I booted it up, I get the same behavior just a little cooler on both idle and load.

core#0 32c
core#1 22c
core#2 24c
core#3 22c
package temp 33c

core#0 52c
core#1 52c
core#2 52c
core#3 48c
package temp 52c

Is this normal for an Ivy Bridge cpu or is it possible that I just messed up putting on the heatsink/paste?

**All temps are from stock speed and voltage. Temps act the same with 4.2ghz overclock at 1.08v except load is around 60c.

That's normal, yes. My 2500K has two rogue cores; one that's always a few degrees warmer than the others and one that's always a few degrees cooler. (For me it's Cores 0 (the cool one) and 1 (the "hot" one))

Nothing to worry about.
