Ok was thinking that however the VRMS are before the CPU andf the CPU temps don't go passed 44 celicus in fact all other components don't go passed 44 Celsius except the VRM. And the VRM are in the middle of the loop. If heat transfer was working correctly other components should and would be directly affected by the VRM which doesn't seem to be the case. Something is wrong with the motherboard for sure.

Yeah thought that too I checked it a re-seated the block 3 times its for sure hitting. But as further testing goes I know what ASUS did wrong with my board.
While stress testing I can touch the heat transfer plate inside the computer. The heat transfer plate is directly attached to the block itself. Temps showing 75 celcius in Asus AI but the heat transfer plate is cool to the touch!? Go to touch the back plate and WOW its like touching lava. Even the stock heatsink when it was installed didn't seem the dissipate heat at all. Even with stock cooling there becomes a clear point where the temps stop going higher. This never happened with the VRM. The temps would keep climbing and climbing as if there was no end in sight. Now you may be thinking im using too much volts. NO, in fact the CPU volts are 1.43 and the CPU/NB 1.21 overclocked at to 4.6ghz. In my eyes Im not pushing things on my rig at all. I believe the VRMs were in fact installed backwards! Stock heatsink didn't do a thing besides having amazing airflow and a total of 13 fans in my case. Also installed the liquid cooling block I know others that have installed this and I did it exactly as they did and don't reach temps of over 48 Celsius on the VRMS. From day one the VRM on my motherboard has been an apparent issue. I am getting a replacement from amazon in the next two days. Looking at the board with no heatsink or back plate the VRMS look almost exactly the same on the top and bottom of the motherboard. It would be very easy to install backwards if you were not careful. LOL Would explain why I can't dissipate heat at all!
Oh yeah forgot to mention im not overclocking my GPU at all its mainly for bling factor
TEMPS AT LOAD
GPU- 32 Celsius
NB- 34 Celsius
CPU- 44 Celsius
VRM- 80+ CELSIUS
