Default one hot core on intel quadcore

Have just finished building a basic gaming system; was running on air at first but....
Asrock Z68
Intel i5 2500K
2 x 4 Generic 1333 ram
GTX 580
Corsair VS 650
120 GB Kingston SSD
1 TB Seagate Storage Drive

Did a bit of overclocking...my first attempt seem to run good at 4.1 GHZ using the Asrock Overclocking software... Phase 2...updated the ram to 4 x 4 GB and removed the air cooling and added a Corsair H80i...all seems good and haven't really started to overclock...but noticed what I am thinking is an anomaly with the Corsair Link Software...it shows the following temps;
Temp #1 32.0C
Temp #2 26.0C
Temp #3 41.5C
Temp #4 29.0C

So why the difference with the #3 Temp?

One core has more load? Try running something that stresses all cores and see if they even out.

Also not really modding related.

Apologies if I have listed in wrong forum [which is the right one?]

Your response was the same as my initial thought...then I realised that the temps mentioned are specified as motherboard temps under the heading of Asrock Z68 Extreme 3 Gen 3...and not temps of the cpu cores, as they are just about even [at 26.0C to 29.0C] in the picture of the Corsair software specified under the heading of 2500K...

Thought anyone?
