My System Specs

I think you have that backwards dude.
The CPU cores always have a higher temp then the heatspreader.
At idle the main temp for my quad (which would be the heatspreader temp) is 25C. Each core at idle runs at 28C.
I use Gigabyte's EasyTune5 Pro to check my cpu temp, and AMD OverDrive Utility to see the core temps. Everest is good too. It gives me the same readings.

Maybe you have a CPU that the heatspreader wasn't applied to correctly when manufactured?
