will a 240mm aio lower vrm temps?

Just now, biko24 said:

As I said.  It won't affect the thermals a whole lot and even then the board will easily power a 2700x. 

Is it worth spending the extra for an aio? Depends if you're satisfied with the current stock cooler or not.

I don't see how it would improve VRM temps.

I wouldn't worry about that with your motherboard though, especially if you've got decent airflow inside your case. The VRMs on it are more than capable to run a 2700X.

If anything, it would probably increase the VRM temps due to almost no airflow over VRM area compared to the 2700X's stock cooler or even a tower aircooler.

i use 3 silent wings 3 120mm fans as a side intake and 2 140mm silent wings 3 as a top exhaust.

It won't change anything/lower it. 

It could slightly affect it because there's no more airflow for the vrm. But either way, the board can power a 2700x easily so I wouldn't worry about it.

I mean it will cool the 2700x, it will certainly be better than the stock cooler.

Why do you want to lower VRM temps? Your mobos has decent a decent VRM-design to begin with. As long as it's not overheating (which i'm pretty sure it's not with a 2700X), you'll se no change whatsoever from lowering VRM temps.

Technically the Arctic Liquid Freezr 2 would slightly reduce temps as it has a VRM fan on the waterblock.

My words of advice:

Don't buy Cherry Browns.

Don't play Overwatch. I've hate the game yet I play it every day.

Wireless > Lighter Mice

Silence > Temps for Coolers

Get a good PSU

As already mentioned it won't lower the VRM temps most likely.. I will mention though that I have a ml240lite myself on my 2600X, and with half decent airflow being pulled into the case (but still quiet), and having a couple of fans above the CPU area to exhaust, has my VRMs at 40C approx most of the time.
