Hey guys, Just built my first system and it seems to be working beautifully for the most part. All components of my PC are cool to the touch, at least barely above 35 -40ºc except the 12+2 DIGI+ VRM (digital power) component. I'm worried something is wrong, is this supposed to be so hot? Its burns to the point where I can't keep my finger on it for more than a few seconds, and applying a temperature probe gives readouts of around 70ºc. Is it possible my water block back-plate is creating a short somehow? I'm using a xspc raystorm cpu waterblock.

Did you overclock it at all?

Okay I went back in and restored defaults again, I must have accidentally tweaked something because temp probe is reading 43ºc now and its much cooler to the touch. Are those the sort of temps I should expect while overclocking? Is there some sort of water block we can attach to the DIGI+ VRM component

Let me know how your OC turns out splinter, I'm still kinda worried I may have messed up somehow.

Thanks for the quick responses guys! =D
