Uneven top and bottom temperatures

I made my first double size cake in my new oven. The top came out beautifully flat - not. Single crack in it. I thought I took some photos but I cant find them. I set the top temp at 165C and bottom at 170C. As i said, the top came out beautifully flat, but the whole middle of the cake was a tad bit underdone, while the outsides were perfect. The center was still eatable. I was originally thinking the reason for the cake coming out so flat was the temperature difference. Any other possible reasons?

Was the oven rack in the center of the oven? Maybe the cake was closer to one element?
