I might, because it's pretty bad having a $60 cooler on my M5A97 R2.0 (which makes it so I can't cool the phases).

Update: found out it's a doubler.

Is there a reason why you buy this board besides the vrm cooling? I had this board and i wasn't really happy with it to be honest.. its up to you but Gigabyte BIOS (UEFI) is pretty much nerved. After not even half a year the audio jack died and i had all kinds of problems with it.. I shipped the board back to my retail store and they gave me back my money as this was the second board that went bad on me in a short period of time.. I bought the Asus Sabertooth R3.0 instead and i couldn't be more happy to be honest. You cannot even compare it to the Gigabyte in many ways..

If i were you i wouldn't touch Gigabyte these days and stay away from them as far as possible but that's only my 2cents.gif

btw, the Asus sabertooth 990FX R3.0 has a nice heatsink with a shroud where you can place a 40mm fan to blow on the vrm's.

And the shroud is completely removable which is nice too. It gives you the option to use other cooling solutions on the vrms as well. I haven't plugged the board in yet but I am admiring it. I'm glad I bought this board. thumb.gif

LLC is not working with my board. When I did LLC medium everythings get too high temps. Now I found new test system. I use realbench benchmark 5 time runs. When it's stable it stays stable.

Trust me, you are more happy with Asus than with Gigabyte right now. Don't take it from me though but from a man that has way more experience than me called Undervolter.

Yes it is. Today my Noctua NF-A4x10 FLX arrived an its a cute little fan but you can't compare it to my 80mm stock cooler AMD fan to be honest.
Its very quiet and i cannot even hear it but its a little underwhelming to be honest. Vrm temps doesn't decrease like thought it would be so i might do some more investigation tomorrow when i have more time. I can also take some pictures if you like.

As for the rest, this board is really amazing and i love the BIOS and how it looks. I thought the R2.0 was great but the R3.0 is even better if possible.

Hurricane, do your vrms run hot on the new board? My R2.0 is a hottie.

Did you look at the voltages that LLC gives you under load?

Yes, I did. Medium value LLC only gives the right voltages under the load.

How do the voltages change while using medium and others? I've got the Asus Aura and anything above high LLC (which is medium since I have ultra high and extreme) gives a bunch of heat more. Around 150W more from the wall socket and raises my volts for +0.15 or +0.20. Maybe you need to look at what voltage you need to set and LLC you need to use to maintain stability under load, sometimes lowering the LLC and upping the voltage a bit does a better job than setting LLC higher. That's why I asked you what your voltages were. If possible, give us results from hwmonitor or something while stress testing.
