As the title says, two of my cores are significantly hotter than the other two. Currently two are at over 90 degrees while the other two are at 60. This is at idle under no load. Under load the two cores stay at 100 and do not get any hotter than that (throttling I am assuming). Just reinstalled my OS to see if that would fix it and nothing changed. Any ideas?

normal.. one core runs at 3800mhz .. if u can change the thermal paste it will help to minimize that

Sorry, shouldve said I have had this laptop for over a year now and this has never happened. And I understand that some cores can be hotter, but a 30 degree difference on cores 1 and 3 compared to cores 0 and 2 seems out of the ordinary*

then i guess its the thermal paste dried out.. try changing it to something like arctic mx4 or kryonout
