RealTemp is Intel. Since OP has AMD, he should use CoreTemp instead.

A lot of people bash hardware monitor, but it's temp readings are good (the same as real temp). You shouldn't really be paying too much attention to the voltages though, it's my understanding they can be way off.

You know, it also depends on the heatsink you use.
If it is the direct contact heatsink like a hyper 212+, then you need to fill in those valleys in the heatsink first, then use rice size amount on the CPU itself.
It does make a big difference in temps.

Well, id be a complete cooling newb tbf, i don't even know what was initally in there:

It was incasing the cpu, black, cylindrical, and had 2 pipes going up to the back-case exhaust, the contact part to the cpu was completly flat and round copper, looked a bit like a mini version of those giant magnets used to pick up cars, and yeah im aware i sound like a retard lol. If anyone would inlighten me on what type of cooling it is, id be greatful.

Apply paste, apply heatsink.

Remove heatsink, check TIM coverage. Add TIM as needed, reapply heatsink.

That would be hybrid water cooling, such as the Corsair H50/70, which I believe is what you are describing. It might one of the older Asetek (OEM for Corsair and Antec) models before hybrid WCing went mainstream.
