Thirdly VRM temps are GREATLY affected by LLC settings, no mention was made of any setting...likely used auto.
I have never seen the VRM's on my Taichi go over 67c, and that was at 32c ambient temps pushing 1.53v through a 12 thread 2600 on a single fan air cooler.
only 12 are for VCore and if you're using a Ryzen 5 2600 you're going to get different power draw than a 8 core.
If you're using an air cooler you get more airflow over the VRM also.

Ill drop a Ryzen 9 3900x into it snd see how it goes. When I have more info regarding the new boards Ill make an educated decision.

Why are you making his thread about you?
If you have a Crosshair VII Hero there really isn't a reason to buy a X570 board unless you plan on making use of the PCIE 4.0 since it sounds like you never use AVX instructions anyway.
If you're using a board under Ln2 , rather than under water it's a different operating scenario because the board is also dissipating heat via the LN2. In addition, the CPU is consuming less than if it were the same at ambient for any given voltage because lower temps lower leakage.

Even if the M7 is decent in memory overclocking (it's basically Pro Carbon + 2 power phases via doublers), the components and overall package of the Crosshair VII hero are so much better that I wouldn't bother looking at the M7.
1usmus is overlooking the fact that the M7 is basically a midtier board with thicker PCB: it doesn't even have a heatpipe for its power delivery or powerstages instead of discrete mosfets.
