    Safe Temps for VRM and PCH ?

    After an 4 hour gaming session the VRM Sensor measured 60 °C.

    So I was wondering what temps are considered safe for the PCH and the VRM.
    I couldn't find any info.

    60C is perfectly normal. If you want to improve the VRM cooling, you can put a fan over it.

    Thanks for the answer. I think i gonna switch my top radiator from exhaust to intake. That should bring some airflow from the pull fans to the VRM heatsink.

    That ought to lower your water temperature by a little as well, since you won't be exhausting hotter case air.
    Resistance is futile (at <1 Ohm).

    I use this block vom EKWB: http://www.ekwb.com/shop/blocks/moth...al-nickel.html

    My VRMs got very hot, because my 5960x needs 1.45-1.50v to run at 4.5 GHz. The waterblock helped a lot. Btw, the stock VRM cooler is a massive piece of metal and if you use a fan, I think the stock cooler should do the work.
