True enough, but like I said...eventually it's going to get much hotter. If I'm going through the trouble of water-cooling everything, may as well be preemptive when it comes to the vrm. I'm good if it hits 70-80c, that is a normal operating temp. But was more concerned whether or not it would be more effective to buy a $15 fan or re-work the air flow through the case. I know it doesn't need much "flow" to take heat with it. But considering there isn't much flow in the entire case anyway, well a 60mm fan would do the job. Said before it wasn't critical, just wanted to keep it all to reasonable temps if/when I do get the chance to really push the system. Hence the research on a fan, quality, cfm, etc. and not a big push to get it all done now. Believe me have far bigger fish on the line right now. Oh, here's a good one...what in the world is a "rep" on here? I wanted to post a WTB and according to the forum I need 35 'reps'. It doesn't say what they are and the administrators I've contacted haven't replied. Wasn't looking for much, just some dupont cimp on pins and some connectors. Figured if somebody would sell some leftovers and send them in an envelope for a couple bucks vs. spending a buck for the parts and 6 for shipping lol Anyway, thought at first a rep was in relation to posting. ex: 100 posts = 1 rep or something like that. But I've seen people on here with 300 posts and 40 reps, and people with 3 thousand posts and 10 reps.

That "rep" is supposed to mean "reputation". If you look on the left of a post written by someone, there's a rectangular area with their user name and some details. There's a "Rep: ..." line there. At the bottom of that area, you see two icons that you can click for giving +1 reputation and for reporting someone. The icon with the flame look is the one for +1 reputation.

You basically need to help other people or write some interesting post. There's then always the chance that someone will click the +1 rep button on a post you made.

Those 35 rep you need can take a super long time because most people do not know about that whole rep stuff. The idea to click on the rep button will then never pop up in their mind and they will never click it.

Damn...my VR VCC temp hits 98C when running P95 all on stock clocks and auto voltage! wth?

Ahhhhh, appreciate that. That was the only thing I could think as well. That you help somebody or offer information and you get one from an admin or something. Like I ask questions, you give me an answer that solves the problem and I tell the admin what a great help you were. But that makes sense, much easier leaving it up to each other. LOL guess I won't be getting to post the WTB then. No biggie, had some other stuff to order and remembered to add the connectors/pins to it. Last time I forgot and like I said, really didn't want to pay the $6 shipping for $1 worth of parts. Unfortunately where we moved to I don't have an electronics store to pickup things locally. Used to have an amazing one near Detroit that I shopped at for almost 20 years. Anything you could imagine and a few things you'd never think of, this guy had it. We live in Al now and it's hard finding the simplest of things locally. So the internet has been the greatest source of parts.

Anyway, appreciate the help from everybody. Ultimately was just looking for a simple fix, so at least it was figured out. I'll try a few things once the new fans come in and maybe use some acrylic sheet to create some air channels. But need to get a couple other projects done first. Going to post pics in the liquid cool section once they are completed.

do you know that's your VRM temp sensor? a lot of boards don't have a sensor for the VRM. mine doesn't.

98C isn't really a worrying temperature while running Prime95 on a 9900K though, I'd be worried if you were hitting 98c when idle on the desktop but not under a 100% all core load.

it would take you over a year running Prime95 24/7 to hit 10K hours.

My board has a VRM temp but I thought the VR VCC reading off the CPU [#0]: Intel Core i9-9900K Enhanced was the important one to watch but now that you mention it the actual voltage regulator is on the MB PCB surround the socket not in the CPU so I guess that's good. BUT now I'm terrified that my CPU is reporting ANY temp that high running on stock where the hell is that reading coming from my chip is under a waterblock? The core readings are all pretty cool, that VR VCC reading is the highest one in the whole sensor panel! Am I freeking out for nothing? I'll post a screenshot here

how about u put mono block on that thing and not worry about vrm temps at all anymore? i guess money wont be an issue, and you can sell ur cpu block as well.

@memery.uag :

The HWINFO developer has a thread here on overclock.net. Maybe ask there and see what he says.

I'm wondering if those 90°C are a wrong reading somehow. I'm guessing your actual VRM temperatures are more around the 70°C or the 75°C that are reported in the section with the board's main sensor chip or in that first VR section on the right of your screenshot.

The thread I mean is here:

If the fan is blowing across the shield, get rid of the blasted shield so the air can reach the VRM. If you want a shield and are pretty handy, then make one that the fan blows under to help cool that VRM. Seriously though, pull that junk shield or tweak it so the air flow goes where it should

No one uses those small fans in such anymore, have not used any to give you a solid rec. except noctua always makes solid products.
