    I'm also waiting for the new Intel H15 m.2 to try in VROC on the Omega MB (three)...
    My next step sounds just like yours. The 7900 is going into my Strix for another build and I am going to get a 7980XE for the Omega.

    Nonetheless, my VRM temps are simply great with the monoblock and this would be the last reason I would change it. Even if the separate block performs better it is a non factor...

    With 5X Cores @ 4.7Ghz & the rest at 4.4Ghz my VRM never exceeds 50C under stress......certain "turd cores" though (2,5,9,11) insist on hitting 100-103C at 4.4Ghz or 4.2Ghz even at the lowest possible voltage...this leads me to believe that the monoblock does not make good contact with that area of the CPU...

    I will see how this goes with the Velocity BEFORE I delid the chip just to have a reference point. If for any reason I see no difference and my Direct Die cooling attempt FAILS, I MIGHT be tempted to get the copper IHS just because I like the looks of the monoblock. However, it sucks that I will have to pay AGAIN....this platform and high clocks chasing turned to a money sink it seems....

    Yeah my VRMs with the monoblock never go over 45c the copper IHS is just a must if you don't want to waste your monoblock, if you do use the copper IHS make sure to use the correct LM as I have read lots of people reporting the copper and thermal grizzly LM has a bad affect on each other.

    yeah, x299 money sink.. but it keeps you going, that's for sure. Just think how bored you would be with a 5.2Ghz z390..

    Hi,
    Most people didn't do a z390 board yet but did do 8700k/ z270 some from silicon lottery and did it again for 9900k
    These people may not realize it but they could of bought for the same money a 7940x.. or now maybe 9940x..

    And still don't have the cpu performance in either chip as 7900x does at 1k

    Money pit only in wasted products frankly of which the mono block sure was one of those.
    Most of the losses are frankly water cooling

    Should of just jumped right into chillers and saved a lot on 2-3-4 rads...
    Copper cpu cap give me a break
    Cheap but not going to make that much difference probably just lucky LM application is all.
