VRM Temps High?

I was gaming on valorant and my VRMs were at 56 C max. is that fine? im not always benchmarking so this is fine right?

more than fine. if you never encounter those scenarios where it's over 100 then don't worry.

 

some games i play make my CPU/VRM much hotter than others though, so keep an eye out. But if 107 is the highest you ever see in a synthetic test you will never do, it's probably okay.

I am running 5 GHz @ 1.33 volts and my package temperatures are fine, but my VRM temps are quite toasty. I searched online and I'm getting VRM temps are fine at 120 C while others say 85C is max. I have a Gigabyte Z390 UD motherboard, so I'm not sure if this is an issue. Are my VRM temperatures fine (VRM MOS) ?

That's quite high. 

 

You could try getting some active cooling on the VRM to see if that helps

What is good active VRM solutions? I cannot find any.

Is yours oriented as front intake? if so, it's probably heating up all the intake air, and blowing a bunch of CPU-heated air over your motherboard/GPU.

 

Keep in mind the radiator is also acting as resistance for airflow.

 

If you have rear and top fans, are they oriented as exhaust?

 

As far as normal operating temperature, the components are designed to run at a maximum of 120 or 125c (forget which), but that doesn't mean you want them to be that hot. They are rated for lifespan and that is at number of hours at xyz temperature. So the hotter your power delivery components are the shorter that lifespan is and increases chances of failures.

you can try to mount a 80mm fan on the back of the mobo to blow some air on the VMRs. watch some guides about it.

Tier lists for building a PC.

 

Motherboard tier list. Tier A for overclocking 5950x. Tier B for overclocking 5900x, Tier C for overclocking 5800X. Tier D for overclocking 5600X. Tier F for 4/6 core Cpus at stock. Tier E avoid.

(Also case airflow matter or if you are using Downcraft air cooler)

Spoiler

 

Gpu tier list. Rtx 3000 and RX 6000 not included since not so many reviews. Tier S for Water cooling. Tier A and B for overcloking. Tier C stock and Tier D avoid.

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Spoiler

 

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

Spoiler

 

Cpu cooler tier list. Tier 1&2 for power hungry Cpus with Overclock. Tier 3&4 for overclocking Ryzen 3,5,7 or lower power Intel Cpus. Tier 5 for overclocking low end Cpus or 4/6 core Ryzen. Tier 6&7 for stock. Tier 8&9 Ryzen stock cooler performance. Do not waste your money!

Spoiler

 

Storage tier List. Tier A for Moving files/  OS. Tier B for OS/Games. Tier C for games. Tier D budget Pcs. Tier E if on sale not the worst but not good.

(With a grain of salt, I use tier C for OS myself)

Spoiler

 

Case Tier List. Work In Progress. Most Phanteks airflow series cases already done!

I have the 360mm fan as intakes. and i have 3 exhausts fans at the top that are 120mm each. Okay, Thanks!

Although 107c may seem high relative to your CPU temps, it's really not that bad for mosfets. CPU's are exponentially more sensitive than mosfets and can be damaged at about 100c, while mosfets typically can go over 110c without an issue, though you should always seek lower temps. As others have mentioned, getting airflow to your VRM is your best bet.
