Okay, my humble apology. I have no problem accepting the fact that I don't know everything and in Life I always try to teach others to do the same. We are all human which means we are not perfect.

Thank you for your view, I'll take it and think about it.....

However, in the same breath I'd like to add that the heat spreaders on the VRM for my C7H was never used.... you see when you do extreme clocking, you don't want these things to get in the way. Oh but yes, I do understand when my system from the cpu is sitting at -196C then it will transfer to the VRM..... oops but the vrm will stop working if they get too cold unless you use a hair dryer on it to warm it. Now after my sessions, I actually did not refit the vrm heat spreaders as I see no use to it as my vrm remained cold enough under normal use.

But again, thank you for your very insightful contribution.

AlphaC The Crosshair VII Hero is fine if you don't want/need PCIE 4.0.


Everything under that from Asus X470 lineup I would avoid.
