Since I've installed EK block I leave VRM overheat on and haven't seen any signs of throttling that has happened every time with stock cooling.
But VRM block "backplate" heats up to 60 degrees with serious OC and under full load.
H2O RIVE, H2O 3820 (@4.7GHz 1.4v), G.Skill RipjawsZ 2133 4x4GB (@2400MHz 10-12-11-27-T1),
H2O 2 x HD7970, OCZ Agility3 x2 RAID0, OCZ ZX1250W PSU, Asus Xonar DX Soundcard.
If you allow, I show you three pictures that sum up my VRM cooling is a small part of the CPU.
As you can see above the VRM is a small fan to 2500 rpm. (Provided by Asus for VRM Rampage2)IMG_2055.JPGIMG_2056.JPGIMG_2057.JPG Connected to Opt.fan1 with temp-sensor in the radiator fins VRM. Below the CPU socket is a 12cm fan to 2000 rpm SLIM (14mm) connected to OPTfan3 and temp-sensor at the center of the base plate which draws air from a grid on the side of the cabinet and sends it under the CPU and VRM. Admittedly not push with the setup (VRM LLC medium -130%), but I decided to install them because during the LINX step of the CPU board I almost burned my fingers (50-55 ° C) and VRM were warm (40-45C °)
After this is the plate that the CPU VRM are below 40C °, and the plate cooled translates to about-2C ° temp of the cores. It's not much ... but it helps! What do you think ... without wanting ... not match your excellent liquid cooling?
A hello to all.
