this temperature distribution looks very unusual not not very
uniform. have you looked closely at them?
for example, starting at the lowest, there is a gap
of 9 degrees, then 40, then 15, then 30.

try restarting from the current set of restarts and run
a while longer to collect new exchange statistics and
energy profiles.
