maybe enabling the xmp profile automatically changed the voltage because i dont mess around with stuff i dont know and aren't interested with since i never over clock but i do have factory over clocked parts. 
my noctua's are set with Ultra-Low-Noise Adaptors. For the thermal paste its 4-5 years old lol, also used 60% isopropyl alcohol to clean it off. i have 4 fans connected to the mobo most of them have Ultra-Low-Noise Adaptor  and one with pwm.
 
the settings in bios looks right but in windows the voltages goes up to 1.7+V lol

Have you restored the failsafe default values for your MB in the BIOS as suggested.

 

Can you post a couple of pictures of the cooling fan settings/speed/s, the voltages and the temperatures as reported in the BIOS

 

From your reply #27;

 

Last time i replaced my cpu's thermal paste was a month or two even did my gpu's as well with my old arctic mx-4 (do thermal paste have expiry dates? lol)

 

Indeed they do and such products are also covered by warranty (2 yrs quite common) mx-4 was not one of the best from Arctic and if you read the first page of the thread here you will see what I mean.

 

also used 60% isopropyl alcohol to clean it off

 

 

90 or 99% would have been more appropriate, it is not expensive when compared to the cost of a CPU, what I use here

 

i have 4 fans connected to the mobo most of them have Ultra-Low-Noise Adaptor  and one with pwm.

 

 

 

Apart from the 4 pin CPU fan header on your MB there is also a 4 pin chassis fan header to which you should have at least one fan connected to so that you can manually adjust it yourself, the Noctua NF-P12 fans that you mention are only 3 pin and so cannot be manually controlled, this is why you are only seeing one cooling fan speed in HWMonitor and Speedfan.

Things have improved as the CPU temps and usage have both dropped which are both good.

 

Try disabling Q-Fan Control in the BIOS to see if the CPU fan speed increases and the temps drop further.

Stick with an Arctic Silver product and use the correct method to apply the compound, you will find the "how to" here

Have you done this and if so what happened.

If an old tube, get rid of the gunk in the nozzle first.

Odd as your screen shot in reply #33 shows it to be enabled and in Turbo mode  :headscratch:

 

I would replace the cooler and fan asap.

Not heard back from you Toombs, do you still require assistance or is the issue now resolved, an update would be appreciated.

sorry about that, any who I replaced my cooler (raijintek themis), fan (raijintek themis stock fan) and thermal paste (noctua nt-h1) and still no luck even bought a 99.8% isopropyl alcohol solution. might go back to windows 7 to check if its a windows 10 problem. I even tried different ways to apply the thermal paste; pea, rice grain, cross, line with no luck.

Weird in bios the temps are decent. I stopped using my phantek's case fan hub and just plugged them into their respected place.

Cant see the +12V reading in the BIOS, can I ask what it is reading when checked.

 

Better fan information now available to you and nice to see the CPU fan doing its job.

 

How is the computer behaving now.

 

Do you have a small desktop fan that you could point into the insides of the case (with the side removed of course) this to see if it lowers the AUXTIN temp which I suspect is the Southbridge.

Any crashes or other problems at all.

I wouldn't say so, the AUXTIN reading could be anomalous and if you are not having any further problems I wouldn't worry about it.
