So i'm looking to use it in a new build with a custom loop, I've actually worked on hardline loops before, though to be honest not all that much, still. I'm confused on how I would build my loop to use the VRM coolers built into the mother board. EKWB partnered with ASUS to include this and I'd like to take advantage of it. Has anyone done a custom loop build with this mobo before, any advice? Any videos of people doing it? I just need to know the direction the loop would go.
Thanks for any help
The direction of flow through the VRM block on that motherboard doesn't matter at all. Feel free to make either end the in and the other the out.
The easiest routing would incorporate your CPU block inline with the VRM. Example CPU in > CPU out > VRM in > VRM out > radiator or whatever else is down the line.
Z170 doesn't suffer from VRM heat related issues like x99 or some other platforms so don't worry too much about needing to get the best temps on the VRM. Give priority to CPU and GPU cooling and just work the VRM into the loop.
