My cpu temperature seems to low, it usually stays around 15-16C idle wtf? This is clocked at 4,4 ghz as well!

I use the hyper 212 evo cpu cooler

Try another software. Do you see your PSU specs there? It's also way off, your 5V is showing 3.3 only, then 12V is showing 8v only. These hardware monitoring software are not so accurate, and sometimes your mobo or CPU might have an erroneous sensors.

Best solution

There are two sets of CPU temperature sensors, the On-die CPU Core temperature sensors, and the Socket CPU temperatures sensors.

On-die CPU Core sensors are great for at load temperatures, because they are corrected to display the most accurate temperatures at that temperature level. Socket CPU sensors are great for idle temperatures, but are inaccurate at load (usually be 10-15C) since they are away from the CPU itself.

So reading CPU temperatures is kind of a art, and it can be a small adventure figuring out which is the proper set to be looking at. (Some motherboards have multiple socket sensors.)

Try AMD Overdrive, Core Temp, and Speedfan, and cross reference the results. You should be able to figure out which, specifically, is which so you can trust them.
