I'm planning on, if needed, sanding down the ends slightly on the 140mm plate, but they were out of the 107mm heat transfer plates, so i did what I could. The 140mm will be on the top, whereas the 84mm will be rigged up as a backplate on the board for the long side. Hole to hole is about 74-75mm, so the 73mm would have been too long, most likely. So I went with the 67mm for both top and backplate on the mosfets for the CPU (from measurement, should fully cover all mosfets). Granted, this doesn't sink the chokes, but shouldn't be an issue. That should take care of the mosfets fairly well for doing liquid cooling on them. I'll report temps once available.

I looked into a universal MOSFET block and decided not to bother.. I'm reconsidering that now, I forgot how nice the koolance blocks are.

Seems like Asrock is using the bare minimum recommended inductor for the IR3555 (150nH) and no more , similar to Gigabyte.

I'm disappointed Sinopowers were used for the memory VRM

The inductance isn't that important (besides 150nh is what IR used for their peak efficiency testing)Their current ratings are more important as are parasitics, but we only really know the brand that GBT uses b/c they have markings on them. We do know ASRock's are rated for 60A though and GBT's are rated in the 70s, they do their job well.

Can I put a sound card PCIe x1 on any PCIe slot of those motherboards?

You should be able to for all of them. The only limitation I know of is that some of the boards disable one of the m2 slots if you use the u2 slot (Asus and Asrock both do if I recall correctly.

If you don't use all of the x16 slots you've also got those free too.

Thank you.

So if I had an MSI X399 GAMING PRO CARBON AC, and I want to put a PCIe x1 sound card on the x16 slot, from chipset or from CPU whatever, can I? Once the only PCIe x1 available for that (the first one is blocked by graphics card) shall be used for WLAN?

You should have no trouble installing a x1 card in the second full width PCIE slot in that configuration. You can always put a narrower PCIE card in a wider slot.
