Is manual VRM switching frequency worth using?

I've read a higher vrm switching frequency can help stabilize or push higher overclocks at the cost of more VRM heat output.

Given I have a maximus xi formula with the vrm watercooled heat isn't an issue. I'm pushing a 5.1ghz daily. Should I run a higher vrm frequency

Why don't you test it out and find out for yourself and report your results?

So much this. Also air cooled VRM shouldn't be an issue either unless it was designed poorly.
