Hello
Core 1 is always between 5C and 7C hotter than core 0. Is this normal? I am using stock cooler and a non expensive asrock h61 mobo.
Thanks for your help in advance.

Yeah, it's fine. I have one core on my 2500K that is basically the same way (more like 3-5C, for me). It's normal, though, if for no other reason than one core is being used more than the other.

There will always be temp fluctuation ;) 

For EX:
1 core of my 2600K has a 9C difference :p
