I have unpacked gaming 7 waiting for 8700k to arrive hopefully this week ... I just noticed today this new egg review about the motherboard, should I be concerned? I thought gaming 7 has one of the best VRMs around (including cooling)? is the user perhaps have faulty mobo? Is it the case of vrm heatsink too lose?
Any comments will be much appreciated.

I didnt experience issues with VRM temps being too high myself (max around 60) but it definitely doesnt have the best VRM cooling. In all likelihood yours will be fine but there have been quite a few reports of VRM cooling issues.

Personally i hate this motherboard. Its the first Gigabyte board ive had and im not impressed. The Bios is absolute **** compared to ASUS. The memory overclocking is horrid and extremely difficult considering every time it fails to boot it ******* resets the bios entirely instead of merely putting the memory to default values. That being said if you only intend simple tweaks you should be fine.

do anyone have the info about asus "asp" marking controller, as well as the corresponding driver/doubler?
according to tweaktown asus mobo reviews, it is suspected that asp1400 is from richtek, so do those drivers/dobulers.
i have checked ricktek official site for the info to those little driver/douber ic, but none of them 's marking is started with "C" and the dot is at top left corner.

there is only one driver model having "C" marking however it is started with "1C" rather than "C1", and the dot is located at the bottom left corner.

Mine has no problems at all and VRMs run very cool. I tried a 5ghz overclock and with Prime95 it stayed around 70C.
I suspect some faulty boards are on the loose. If you are that unlucky and get a faulty one you can always try to fix it by yourself or RMA it.

I will take my chance with Gaming 7 and stick with it, hopefully my gskill 3200 14CL will work with it.

Thank you everyone for your comments :-)

EDIT: I lied, after rethinking I'll go with Taichi.... I will go tonight to exchange it.

Any concerns with the Aorus Z370 Gaming 5? Was looking over the data chart at the beginning and didn't see anything too alarming. It will with an i5 8600K and possibly an EK monoblock. Coming off my old X58 UD7 mobo, seems lot a mobos lately have gone a bit thin in the power circuitry department. Not sure if the power circuit components have gotten that good or not, lol

gaming 5 mosfets seem to be the same as ultra gaming mosfets, except gaming 5 has dual inductors for a set of mosfets.

Sadly the only K chip I have currently is a 8700K in my Hero X, I have a i5 8400 in the ASRock Fatal1ty ITX at the moment, I'm getting a i5 8600K to go in there though, I will post on here when I get it with results etc.
