both are capable to handle stock 10900k at around 230w, with little airflow inside the case but not on open test bench having almost zero airflow.
5ghz all-core at 1.378v seems far from stock on a 10900k? no power limits i saw 4.9ghz tops and stock was more like 4.4-4.7ghz all core. Also this person didn't show MOS temp which makes this just a test of how good his cooling is rather than how good the motherboard is at overclocking.
I'm probably just going to be using an nh-d15 with an i7-11700k so i won't be doing extreme overclocking anyway. That cooler blows seems to blow a lot of air around the vrms If the vrms, so if they are more up to the task than the cooler is for cooling the cpu that's good enough. I still think the matx gaming edge needs a proper test of its own, I think the closest comparison would be the msi mpg gaming plus rather than the a-pro, the heatsinks are a lot beefier than the a-pro which Hardware Unboxed showed could handle a 10900k 5.1ghz with low air flow, but not only is the edge's cooling seemingly comparable to the gaming plus, the distribution of circuitry seems more intelligently done on the edge, whereas the gaming plus is again symmetrical which appears sub-optimal.
