Hey everyone,

First I wanted to thank this awesome community for helping me build a well-functioning Hackintosh.

However, after installing HWMonitor, I'm noticing an everlasting temperature difference between core 3 and all the other cores.

Here we can see that die 3 is consistently at a lower temperature than the others (temperatures are high since I'm rendering something in AE atm.) Does this mean its performance is affected? Should I reapply thermal paste, or is this not a problem?
