The VII has a slightly better vrm i believe. Is the VI a hero or extreme?
I'm pretty sure Gigabyte is the only vendor with excellent VRM cooling for X470, specifically the X470 Gaming 7.
It uses a aluminium fin heatsink with heatpipe, it's not just extruded aluminium.
For a long time now motherboard vendors have been using solid blocks of aluminium as heatsinks. While now for some X470 and X570 Gigabyte is using "real" aluminum fin heatsinks for VRM.
I'd say go for the Gigabyte Gaming 7. EDIT:
I was supposed to get the X470 Gaming 7 myself but decided not to because the Gigabyte X570 offerings costs the same while offering the same VRM if not better.
Look at the X570 Aorus Pro and Pro Wifi, if you want something cheaper get the X570 Aorus Elite.
Worth noting with the X470 Gaming 7 is that the 2nd M.2 Slot only supports PCIE2 X4 Exclusively, it does not even support SATA.
I found this sortable table that is really useful for comparing bords down to the technical details. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...gid=2112472504
