I can't speak for quad cores, but I can tell you that my dual core laptop consistently has hotter cores than the actual "CPU" temperature. The Diode also runs hotter. I believe this is all normal.

Hi, depending on how your cooling is setup this sounds normal to me.

As a rule of thumb whenever I build PCs I allow about 3 degrees temperature difference between cores just to allow for various variables etc.

As long as it doesn't consistently exceed about 6 degrees difference when your CPU is near 100% I think you'll be fine.
