Those VRMs are running very cool and are in fact running cooler than mine are. Mine are now peaking at 52-53C.

It does not support BCLK changes or reveal CPU spread spectrum in latest BIOS. The Bus speed is a slightly lower than standard 99.76 which results in 2926.4 MHZ RAM at 2933 settings and I guess around 3057 MHZ at the 3066 setting. The latest BIOS does have RAM steps up to 4000.

I was unable to get my RAM stable at 3066 and it wouldn't even boot at 3200 didn't matter how lose the timings were or what SOC voltage I used. I do have dual rank chips though. I did manage to reduce the timings a lot at 2933 but TRCD would not work well for me under 18. The review of these modules says these have Hynix chips on them and they do seem to behave like Hynix.
