System Monitor CPU graph shows random colors only for 4 CPU cores

Bug Description

On Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon 64-bit (and on Mint 17 series as well) System Monitor CPU graph has random colours for 4 cores only. My AMD FX-series CPU has 8 cores and core 5 to 8 graph is shown in red for each mentioned core separately. There is no option to choose a different colour for each CPU core (it would be nice to have).
The problem is that I can not distinguish which core does what if half of them is shown in the same colour. It kind of defeats the purpose of having a separate graph for each core. Yes, one might argue it is not that important but still - if it is there, I would like to use that option. Multi-core CPUs with more than just 4 cores are widespread.
Having more contrast in those graphs for all cores would solve my problem.
