I read people in a few threads posting gpu's can handle up to 100c ... I'm curious about vrm's. What kind of temps can vrm's handle?

This is a hard question to answer. Each series & cards have their own ceiling of temps that go into unsafe terriroty. Some cards handle heat better than others. There's no straight answer across the board.

A lot of times it has more to do with an over voltage rather than over clocking that causes VRM's to fry.

Also for any card that was pushed to high and fried their VRM, a lot of the times the owners weren't starring at their GPU temp at that moment to be able to answer this question with any accuracy.

Both Nvidia and AMD, each have a ceiling before 'poof'.
