You know, watching reviews on internet, I got really paranoid about vrm temps and so on. Buldzoid had one of those videos.
The other was:
I can tell you now, those videos are nothing but garbage. Sorry, maybe garbage is a harsh word but that's the truth. I don't contest the knowledge of those reviewers but treating some budget boards like it should perform as well under OC as 300 euro boards is ... lets say wrong.
"You need top down cooler, to cool the vrms" another advice that's totally wrong. I tested both. Temps are definitely better with a normal cooler. You don't cool the vrms , you heat them with stock coolers or wraith max.
In the screenshot you can see the temps with a proper cooler on cpu, Gammax 400 dual fan, after a few hours of gaming. A bit hot in the room because is summer but the case is cool to touch and the air evacuated in the back is not even warm.
I would say that Asrock Steel Legend, Pro 4, Gigabyte Aorus, Asus Tuf Pro, all are excelent choices and perform within 1-2% of the more expensive x570 boards.
